MONTRÉAL, Canada (PRWEB) July 05, 2012
tawkon, the only health and wellness app that notifies users of potentially dangerous cell phone radiation ‘peaks’ and warns and protects them from harm without limiting their mobile phone usage, was selected as a finalist by the International Startup Festival in Montréal, Canada.
“Being selected as a finalist at the International Startup Festival in Montréal is a real honor and especially significant due to the remarkably high number of downloads and interaction of the tawkon app in Canada,” said Gil Friedlander, Co-founder & CEO, tawkon. “Returning to Canada where I was born and educated at McGill is always a great thrill."
Cell phone radiation has been covered extensively in the media lately due to the recent announcement by the Federal Communications Commission promising to reopen an inquiry into whether its regulations do enough to protect consumers from harmful radiation from cell phones. This is the first time that cell phone radiation guidelines would have been looked at since 1996.
“The International Startup Festival in Montréal is a great chance to expose the Montreal and Canadian Start Up community to some of the most innovative startup companies from around the world, including tawkon – all the way from Tel-Aviv,” said Philippe Telio, the festival’s main organizer and the president of Embrase Business Consulting.
tawkon will be exhibiting their Android app in the mobile tent at the Exhibition tents at the International Startup Festival from July 11th – 13th.
tawkon is setting the standard for responsible mobile device usage by creating smart, practical solutions that lets users take control of their exposure to cellular radiation.
