FierceWireless’s 15 faves

Two Seattle-area companies are on FierceWireless annual Fierce 15 list, unveiled today.

Bellevue-based SNAPin Software, which develops software to manage cellphones, was named one of the top 15 emerging wireless companies for 2007. Bellevue-based Gogomo was also named. It is working on solving interoperability problems when it comes to content across carriers and devices.

FierceWireless, an electronic newsletter, said many of this year’s Fierce 15 firms are focused on innovative applications — both for the consumer and enterprise markets. “Applications, not equipment, were a common theme at the recent CTIA Wireless conference in Orlando where most of the companies on the show floor were demonstrating applications that would boost operator revenue,” the newsletter said. “This was a striking change from the past when the focus was more on telecom equipment.”

Others that made the list: TeleNav (which has offices in Bellevue), JumpTap (a competitor of Seattle-based Medio Systems), Ecrio, Integrated Mobile, Interop Technologies, iSkoot, Metrico Wireless, Millennial Media, Neonode, Obopay, Omnilink Systems, Sonopia and Tensorcomm.
