WASHINGTON, Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- There is no question that for the U.S. wireless industry, we'll remember 2010 as another fantastic year where we saw tremendous growth, innovations and achievements. In recognition of the industry's success this year, CTIA-The Wireless Association® reviews the industry in the December "Wonder of Wireless" (WOW) webcast and blog (www.ctia.org/blog). CTIA also reviews some of the important policy issues—including net neutrality, spectrum and environmental issues—that are important for the industry in 2011.
For those whose schedules include holiday parties, this month's Wireless at Work segment may help you fight off those extra calories. Mobile apps are helping consumers stay fit and improve their workouts, and we show you what happens when wireless meets fitness when we talk to Michael Williams from Digifit. He demonstrates iSpinner as well as some other mobile apps that can track a person's heart rate and cadence to help improve your exercise routine.
In the December Insider Interview, we hear from CTIA's President and CEO Steve Largent. He addresses the growth the industry has experienced, despite the challenging economy as well as the association's efforts to support the industry in 2010. Largent also discusses 2011 and what's next for CTIA and the industry from a policy perspective.
In 2010, CTIA has been extremely active on numerous policy fronts such as spectrum, lowering taxes and fees, promoting safe driving and making wireless accessible to all. December's Policy Point highlights the progress CTIA and the wireless industry have made this year in these important policy issues.
Finally, this month's Wireless Lifesaver features Oregonian Darrin Boehmer, a man who was visiting a center that provides job training for disabled individuals. Thanks to his wireless device and his quick thinking, he saved a life on a day that he will never forget.
