<p>Rapidly developing wireless networking technology and the growing mobile-device user base have fueled interest in activities that deliver ads to mobile devices over a wireless network. Studies by wireless media research companies indicate that delivering permission-based alerts to wireless phones captures consumers' attention, drives response actions, and builds brand awareness. Wireless devices are accessible, personal,and location aware. These characteristics allow for highly targeted, flexible, and dynamic wireless ads.
