Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 18, 2008
Ontela has been named to the MobileBeat2008 Top 10 for making it ridiculously simple to get pictures off of camera phones. Honorees were judged on the boldness of their ideas and the chance that their business would become a grand slam hit. The VentureBeat award combined public voting and participation with an expert panel to choose the very best of the mobile industry. These elite companies will be featured at the MobileBeat2008 conference to be held in Sunnyvale, California on July 24th.
"We're proud to be honored with this important industry award," said Dan Shapiro, CEO of Ontela. "Being chosen as Top 10 shows that consumers and experts alike are frustrated with how hard it is to use pictures on a camera phone, and appreciate that we can fix it!"
Ontela has been in the news recently with carrier launches on the Alltel, Cincinnati Bell, and nTelos networks. Other recent honors include Dow Jones Wireless Innovations "Top 10" and CTIA E-Tech first place award for "Best Mobile Entertainment and Social Networking".
