Young market, young customers, and young companies

Author: Bobby Singh
CEO & President,Cellspin
CellSpin is a provider of graphical user interface in mobiles for capturing images, audio, video, and text and publishing and enabling users to share the same on the internet quickly. Founded in 2006, the company is headquartered in San Jose, CA.

As the wireless and Smart Phone market is undergoing major changes, the market has started targeting younger folks who have a fantasy for the hottest devices and unlimited data plans. In three years from now, I believe that the Smart Phone market will be about 20 percent of the overall mobile market.

Hence to keep these markets hooked, companies are increasingly adapting the offdeck strategy by working for companies with innovative products and good value proposition. Interestingly, wireless service providers are opening up and are willing to work with young companies and the business cycle has reduced from 18 months to 12 months.
There are real signs now that the mobile advertising market will exhibit its true potential in near future. I believe, today the mobile advertising is where Internet advertising was in 1998. Thus, companies that figure out creative ways to use it and monetize their offerings will leapfrog the competition and there will be some real winners in this space.

4G / LTE /WiMax will all happen but are still at least two years away and the wireless service providers are upgrading their networks. There will still be six to eight OS mobile application companies that will have to offer the required support for the next five years. Windows, OS x, Linux, Symbian, Blackberry, Android, LiMo OS, and Palm OS may die out, but then there will be a couple of newer versions of Android, Linux, and Limo.

1: From: Mrs. Mary David

This mail may be a surprise to you because you did not give me the permission to do so and neither do you know me but before I tell you about myself I want you to please forgive me for sending this mail without your permission. I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the will of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly. I need an honest and trust worthy person like you to entrust this huge transfer project unto.

My name is Mrs. Mary David, The Branch Manager of a Financial Institution. I am a Ghanaian married with 3 kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit last year (i.e. 2010 financial year). I have already submitted an annual report for that year to my head office in Accra-Ghana as I have watched with keen interest as they will never know of this excess. I have since, placed this amount of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars on an Escrow Coded account without a beneficiary (Anonymous) to avoid trace.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account on my behalf. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and 60% would be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be transferred to your account.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response to me. This is why and only reason why I contacted you, I am willing to go into partnership investment with you owing to your wealth of experience, So please if you are interested to assist on this venture kindly contact me back for a brief discussion on how to proceed.

All correspondence must be via my private E-mail ( for obvious security reasons.

Best regards,
Mrs. Mary David.
