Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) November 4, 2004
World Assets Group Inc. (WLRDF: OTCPK) announced today that it has received shareholder approval to redomicile the corporation from Ontario, Canada to Nevada and file to change its name to Mobile Assets Inc. to reflect its rapidly developing core business of mobile technology and services. The company has filed to effect a new CUSIP number and has requested a new trading symbol.
Andy Ruppanner, Chairman stated, ÂAs the company has developed, it realized mobile technology and services were becoming the dominant percentage of its business portfolio, and that mobile business is much more than just cellular phones and networks. All of the computer applications such as e-commerce, games, and entertainment are now converging into mobile applications and the business opportunity is significant. Ring tones alone represent a $300,000,000 business opportunity in the U.S. for 2005.Â
According to a study from Telecom Trends International, "There were 94.9 million mobile commerce users in 2003 which will grow to 1.67 billion users by 2008." The study continued, "Revenues from mobile commerce will grow globally from US$6.86 billion in 2003 to over US$554.37 billion in 2008."
"M-commerce is not just e-commerce gone mobileÂ it's much moreÂ and it will become a serious part of the global economy," said Susan Welsh de Grimaldo, author of the study. "Since people carry their cell phones everywhere, cell phones will eventually start to replace wallets as a place to store credit cards, frequent shopper cards, and even family photos," she said.
Today there are 1.52 Billion global mobile users with approximately 200 million of those residing in North America, which is the fastest growing major market.
