Press Release – On Heels Of Acquisition, Full Circle Wireless Launches Major Global Service For The Enterprise

Recent acquisition by Clover Holdings Inc. positions reverse logistics expert to become the global leader in wireless buyback for enterprises on a global level.

Irvine, CA – October 11, 2011 – Full Circle Wireless, the global leader in extending the usefulness and value of wireless devices, today announced that the company has launched a new solution that will offer the industry’s broadest buyback opportunities for enterprise customers and carriers, as well channel partners. The new service will ensure greater success in closing or renewing opportunities – providing enterprise customers a way to reclaim unrealized revenue for wireless devices far-beyond the typical handset.

“The combination of Full Circle Wireless and Clover is exciting,” says Shelton Basham, CEO for Full Circle Wireless. “Together we will accelerate our vision of enabling global service excellence by integrating highly complementary solution sets, leveraging the industry’s deepest service domain expertise, and serving, by far, the industry’s largest and most impressive client base. Together we are the clear wireless buyback market leader with capabilities to deliver unparalleled value to our clients and partners worldwide.”

While others have focused on gaming systems, DVD’s and cameras at the consumer level, Full Circle built it’s foundation on cell phones and is now expanding to include mobility solution devices, wireless scanners, modems and other carrier supported, and higher-value, wireless devices. Until now, this type of equipment has been ignored in the buyback arena.

“Our acquisition of Full Circle Wireless is a clear demonstration of Clover’s commitment to building the wireless industry’s broadest and deepest buyback service solution,” says Brian Regan, Executive Vice President of Clover Environmental Solutions, a division of Clover Holdings Inc. “Full Circle’s leading services, in combination with products and services currently offered by Clover, will now enable the world’s leading carriers and companies to best capitalize on opportunities and maximize revenue, profits and customer retention in both the retail and enterprise channels.”

Full Circle is already engaging customer opportunities on a custom quote basis.

Basham continues, “Because this is an acquisition and not a round of investment we are positioned for the long haul to sustain our position as the global leader in wireless buyback at the enterprise level. Our focus is squarely on long term profitability and value vs. short term gains.”

As organizations seek to generate cost savings and grow margins through green initiatives, they continue to partner and succeed with Full Circle Wireless for all their wireless device recycling needs.

iPad Newspapers

This week News Corp launched The Daily which is an iPad only publication boasting a more interactive experience.  According to CNNMoney.com, $30 Million was invested for launch and yearly costs are $26 million.  The Daily has 100 staffers committed to the new publication costing $0.99/week or $40/yearly subscriptions.

New York Times is starting their own iPad publication called News.me. This app will be less traditional in that it will show stories based on your preferences and what’s being read by who you follow on Twitter.  News.me seems to be more of a competitor of Flipboard by being a aggregating articles instead of the new content provided by The Daily.

Full Circle – CES 2011 Recap

The Full Circle gang had a blast at CES.  We met some amazing people and found some really great products.  Here are some of our highlights!

LG had some amazing products to show off this year.  We were most impressed with their OLED TV’s with the very thin (2.9 mm to be exact) screen.  We also got to play with LG’s newest smartphones (LG Optimus 2X and LG Optimus Black).  The LG Optimus 2X was fun to pick up 3.8 ounces.  Both boast some great features which shouldn’t be missed.

Panasonic had the ‘wow factor’ with their impressive room of screens and the 12.6 foot wide 3D plasma!

The office is a buzz with the excitement we had at CES 2011 and can’t wait for CES 2012!

iPhone Alarm Glitch

You are not alone if you over slept due the iPhone’s alarm not ringing this morning.  The apparent self fix that Apple assured users yesterday would fix itself, left many iPhone users late for work today.  Apple told Engadget, “We’re aware of an issue related to non repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3.”   Unfortunately for many who trusted the self correction, their alarm failed to ring.  CNN is reporting 5 free alarm apps that do work such as the Nightstand Central Free or Clock Pro Free.  Or we recommend setting up an old fashioned alarm clock in the mean time!
