Fierce Wireless’ “Fierce 15” for 2010

Annually FierceWireless picks its list of fifteen “Fierce” wireless start-ups. The 2010 honorees are a diverse lot, including a VC firm, suppliers of wireless applications for niche markets, and a company trying to bring comic books to smart phones. My personal favorite is an outfit called “PowerMat” which offers inductive charging solutions to handset manufacturers. In their scheme, a suitably equipped phone may be placed on a special inductive mat for close proximity inductive charging – or just insert a dongle into your phone charger jack and place it on the PowerMat pad. The PowerMat concept makes far more sense than the far-fetched, Tesla-esque notion of an all pervasive energy field charging devices throughout your home or business. And PowerMat has the virtue of actually having real products!
