FierceWireless puts together its Top Wireless Turkeys for 2013

Hot off the press (or out of the oven), FierceWireless presents its Top Wireless Turkeys list of 2013 to highlight the products, strategies and plans that misfired in 2013. Now in its sixth annual edition (check out our lists from 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012), this year's list includes an even greater number of corporate strategies that were either misunderstood, poorly executed or just didn't pan out. (Also, don't forget to check out the Top Wireline Turkeys of 2013 list over at FierceTelecom.)

Some of these turkeys are bigger than others, which is why we have ranked them on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the biggest turkey.

We know it's never nice to point out the faults and failures of others, but, as in years past, we believe that the wireless industry can learn from the foibles of those on this year's list. While this list is by no means exhaustive, it does include some of what we believe were the biggest flops of 2013. As always, we welcome your comments and criticisms. Read more
