Stay in the Loop with Verde's NEW Mobile Application
DURANGO, CO (Feb 4, 2010) – According to a report from eweek.com <http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Mobile-and-Wireless/Number-of-People-Using-Mobile-Devices-Doubles-ComScore-879862/> , the number of people using their mobile devices on a daily basis to access news and other information more than doubled between January 2008 and January 2009, to 22.4 million. More than a third of smartphone users (37%) get news from their iPhone and Blackberry devices. And, when the outdoor trade publication SNEWS <http://www.snewsnet.com/cgi-bin/snews/index.html> recently polled more than 30 industry executives about what their favorite laptop bag was, SNEWS were told "Who needs a laptop bag when you have a smartphone."
Media can now access up-to-the-minute Verde info on the go with the new Verde mobile app, which consists of links to the Verde PR Blog <http://verdepr.com/blog/> , Twitter feed <http://twitter.com/verdepr> , contact info <http://www.verdepr.com/contact_us> , client info <http://www.verdepr.com/verdepr_clients> and Flickr page.
