Torsion Mobile Selects Des Moines for Headquarters; Begins Work on New Product for the Mobile Web

Known as Project M, New Product From Startup Torsion Mobile to Help Both Consumers and Organizations Better Utilize the Mobile Web

DES MOINES, IA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) -   Torsion Mobile, a mobile Web solutions company, announced today that it has opened its headquarters in downtown Des Moines' bustling technology corridor. Founded by industry veterans Christian Gurney and Richard Kirsner, Torsion Mobile will focus on solving some of the most challenging mobile Web issues encountered by both consumers and organizations. Known only as "Project M," Torsion Mobile's engineering team is developing a software-as-a-service technology that will eventually improve the convenience of the mobile Web for users of smart and feature phones.

Unlike application-only tech vendors, Torsion Mobile is focused on developing software that will improve the way people can view websites from their mobile devices, regardless of manufacturer or operating system. Conceptualized by Gurney, who operated NASDAQ-listed CE Software, Torsion Mobile will focus on a variety of technologies that will improve the usability of mobile devices in people's daily lives. According to Morgan Stanley, by 2015 there will be more than 1.6 billion mobile users accessing the Internet, more than those using a laptop, tablet or desktop computer for the same reason.

"With the mobile Web forecasted to grow at these astonishing rates, we recognized the importance of creating a startup that would primarily focus on improving the way people use the web through their mobile devices," said Christian Gurney, CEO and co-founder of Torsion Mobile. "The Des Moines' startup scene is one of the most electric and resourceful tech communities I've come to know in quite some time. We're thrilled with the prospects of drawing from this group as Torsion Mobile will require additional staff to accommodate its projected growth."

Pre-Launch Testing
Invitation-only testing of "Project M" will commence within the next 60 days with a select group of participants. Interested marketing, design and Web professionals are encouraged to register on the company website.
