"MobileInfo.com must be the
web destination site of choice for information needs of IT professionals undertaking mobile
computing, m-commerce and wireless Internet projects" Managing
Editor and Publisher
MobileInfo.com is a unique website for mobile computing
information. We believe that it is different from other websites because:
- Our editors are mobile computing and wireless networking
consultants first and journalists second. We draw upon not only our own experiences, but
also talk to other practitioners and vendors' technical staff. We provide information that
is based on how real-life projects are conceived, justified, designed and implemented.
- We do the tedious task of searching the web, pick out relevant
and useful information from mountains and piles of unorganized information out there,
condense it and then organize it into meaningful and distinct categories which makes it
easy to use for your projects. We are the human search engines that add significant
intelligence as compared to software robots and web crawlers that other portals use.
- We add significant value to the information we provide by our
advisory comments, third party product comparisons and on-line consulting advice.
- We provide the tools, tips and templates to convert this
information into a functional design, an architectural framework or a project plan.
- Our solutions catalog and product catalog are organized in a
manner in which mobile computing practitioners think and select
components for their total mobile computing solution.
- Our solutions catalogue provides those solutions that work
together with other components - which wireless network, which mobile device,
which application software and which middleware work together to provide a complete
business solution to a business problem.
- We provide multi-vendor product, multi-network,
platform-independent and multi-discipline information.
- We provide full project-life-cycle information from an
end-to-end perspective - market outlook, application analysis, business case development,
application development, systems design and a peak into the future.
- Finally, we remove the marketing hype from
and give you bare facts.

Can MobileInfo.com replace external
Our primary goal is to support the information needs of
in-house mobile computing practitioners to do their job more efficiently.
We can not (and do not intend to - after all,
consultants have a legitimate role even in the Internet age) replace face to face consulting with experts where custom solutions are
required and unique information is required. However, we can certainly reduce the amount of routine consulting advice you may
need. We intend to make you more informed and therefore, better decision-makers. You
will continue to need external consulting resources when you require assessment of
specialized organizational requirements and where you want to capitalize on the experience
base of these consultants for designing and building specific business solutions - an
optimal use of two types of resources.
Our advisory board consists of some of the best consultants
in the Industry. Click
