Hot Tech Trend for 2010: Cell Phone Signal Boosters

The increasing use of cell phone signal boosters will be one of the top tech trends of the coming year, projects a leading technology writer in a post on Foxnews.com.

For Wilson Electronics (www.WilsonElectronics.com), which designs, engineers and manufactures cellular boosters at its facility in St. George, Utah, this forecast brings a welcome and added visibility to an award winning product line.

Technology writer John Brandon cited cellular signal boosters as one of his “8 Tech Trends of 2010,” posted Nov. 2 on the Fox News Technology page. Brandon noted that people who live or travel in rural areas ??" as well as those who work deep in urban “high-rise canyons” ??" often have trouble finding or maintaining a reliable cell signal.

Difficulty using cell phones or laptop data cards means those people “can’t participate in the mobile revolution,” Brandon writes in his post. “A booster makes high-speed access viable for everyone.”

Wilson Electronics has long been aware of the importance of cellular access. Company founder and CEO Jim Wilson understood long ago that improved wireless signal quality would be a critical factor in a future where businesses and consumers increasingly rely on technology to stay connected.

“It’s great to see tech observers and influencers like John Brandon, recognize our product category among the major coming trends of 2010,” said Joe Banos, chief operating officer at Wilson Electronics. “Nowadays, not only do people need a reliable cell signal to stay connected when they’re on the go, but more than 1-in-5 U.S. homes don’t even have a land line. Both business people and consumers more and more rely on cellular as their primary communications technology, no matter where they are.”

Wilson Electronics cell phone signal boosters are standard equipment for many public safety departments across the country. A recent National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) accident report recommended vehicles traveling on rural roads should carry cellular boosters to facilitate the reporting of any emergency, and noted Wilson Electronics as a supplier.

“Our relationships with major retailers mean Wilson Electronics is poised to meet market demand for cell signal boosters,” Banos said. “People can find Wilson boosters in selected Best Buy and Radio Shack stores, as well as Amazon.com, Buy.com, and other online retailers.”

The company’s cell booster products have won or been nominated for awards by the CTIA, the Wireless Industry Association, The American Business Awards, CEDIA Industry Awards, and Mobile Village, Wireless Technology for Enterprises and Professionals; among others.
