They're Cooked: The top wireless turkeys of 2014

By Phil Goldstein

At FierceWireless, we're big on tradition and on turkeys, especially at Thanksgiving time.

We have been dishing out our Top Wireless Turkeys for seven years (check out our lists from 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013). As in years past, the 2014 edition is focused on products and business strategies that flopped for one reason or another. Some were products that were poorly executed or pulled from the market after only a short time, while others were entire strategies that did not pan out.

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.

While this list is by no means exhaustive, it does include some of what we believe were the biggest flops of 2014. Be sure to check out FierceCable's top turkeys and FierceTelecom's turkeys as well. As always, we welcome your comments and criticisms.
