Ashland, Oregon (PRWEB) July 12, 2008
When the latest Apple iPhone 3G becomes available, Ashland based Vortx Inc will be giving one to each of its 25 employees and paying the AT&T contract. There are sound business reasons behind this decision as Dana Greaves, Vortx Inc CEO explains;
"The iPhone is a true hand held computer and as a leading developer of software it's vital that Vortx anticipates market developments."
According to a recent Neilsen Mobile survey the US is the most tech savvy nation with nearly 40 million Americans - 16% of all US mobile users - using their handset to browse on the move.
"More importantly, fully 82% of iPhone owners access the mobile internet, making them five times as likely to do so as the average mobile consumer" says Jo Stewart, COO at Vortx.
The second generation iPhone is released on 11 July and will come with 3G, allowing faster access to the web.
iPhone makes it possible for the world's best software developers such as Vortx to create applications that are nothing short of amazing. Designed to leverage the groundbreaking technology in iPhone -- like the Multi-Touch interface, the accelerometer, GPS, real-time 3D graphics, and 3D positional audio -- these applications are unlike anything we've ever seen on a mobile phone.
Vortx specializes in the creation and development of e-commerce websites and has clients throughout the US and overseas. Jo adds "The new iPhone is going to change the way many people access and use the internet and Vortx intends to be at the forefront of those developments, which is why we want all our employees to develop a full appreciation of the iPhone and its capabilities, so enabling us to develop innovative applications for our clients"
iPhone users can access mobile applications at the App Store on the Apple web site. Current applications enable users to bid on EBay auctions or locate friends while on the move. The number of applications is expected to grow very quickly over the coming months.
