Dang it, I read Verious as Verizon and got really excited.

Johaas, sorry that we are not as big in the mobile space as Verizon (yet!). And I used to work at VeriSign and people used to mix us up with Verizon then too. Hope you get a chance to visit our site and register for ongoing WP updates. regards, anil
