For 11 years -- before most technology consulting firms knew how to spell "wireless Internet" -- the pioneering consulting company of Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing has been helping companies in the United States and abroad develop new and enhance existing wireless data products and services. Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing was perhaps the first consulting company in the country to focus on the integration of the Internet with mobile communications.
Alan A. Reiter, president of the Washington, D.C.-area firm, has been examining the global wireless communications marketplace since 1978 when he helped establish and operate the first association in the United States for the independent providers of paging and mobile telephone services.
Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing's consulting expertise includes:
* Business development: Analysis of wireless data products, services and marketing efforts in the U.S. and overseas, with a special emphasis on multimedia applications, such as camera phone photos and videos, music and games.
* White papers, weblogs, podcasts and marketing materials: Editorial consulting and writing of marketing documents ranging from white papers (for non-technical or technical audiences) to Web site text and press releases. Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing straddles the worlds of mobile technology and journalism with expertise in both arenas.
* Corporate and public tutorials/workshops: Creation of presentations on wireless data technology and marketing. Mr. Reiter created the world's first wireless data conference and first cellular conference as well as helping to develop one of the most well known mobile data tutorials for the CTIA.
* Corporate/organization weblogs: Consulting for and ongoing writing of weblogs for corporations and organizations, including the dynamics and "rules" of weblogs, corporate policies and design. Also, development of newsletters for corporations and organizations.
Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing has consulted for a wide range of companies, ranging from small startups to Fortune 50 corporations.
Consulting has included such corporations and organizations as IBM, Intel, Sprint, BellSouth Mobile Data, Retrieval Dynamics, Motorola, Nokia, Ericsson, Qualcomm, Aeris Communications, CTIA, LightSurf Technologies, Diversinet, Lucent and Smart City.

It's no accident we developed the world's first: Cellular magazine, cellular conference, wireless data newsletter and wireless data conference. We also developed, back in 1983, the first newsletter to focus on FM radio subcarriers -- the technology employed by Microsoft for its nationwide wireless data network for SPOT "wireless watches."
We've been analyzing wireless before there was cellular or alphanumeric paging. Before cellular we examined "radiotelephones" and tone-only beepers, and then we used cellular phones and two-way pagers before they were commercially available.
Years ago we alerted our newsletter subscribers to top-secret ventures, such as IBM and McCaw's for wireless data -- which became known as Cellular Digital Packet Data, and Motorola's plans for its ill-fated wireless communicators.
We pride ourselves on understanding what is likely to happen, based on a thorough understanding of wireless data history -- and extrapolating marketplace dynamics on an international scale. Hindsight is easy. After all, any consulting firm can revise its statistics and nicely-published but inaccurate reports.
Today we examine the wireless data ecosystem, including camera phones, mobile TV, games, music, social networking, e-mail and instant messaging. We also examine the latest technologies, from cellular to WiFi to WiMAX.
Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing anticipates change and helps its clients create profitable businesses based upon on-target assumptions about the evolutionary path of wireless communications and computing.
We've been on the record many times. We're not always right, but we're proud of our record of predicting what will -- or will not -- occur in wireless data. We provide highly individualized attention to all our customers.
