Bad CEOs, good music apps and the return of the Motorola Razr

Sue Marek
Between the reincarnation of the Motorola Razr as an LTE Android smartphone for Verizon Wireless' network or the news that Apple's third quarter iPhone sales didn't meet analyst expectations, you might have missed some of the clever and innovative features that the Fierce editorial team debuted this week. So here's a rundown of some great content you should check out.

  • Think you know everything there is to know about the wireless industry--past and present? Try and test your wireless industry IQ by taking the 2011 FierceWireless Ultimate Industry Quiz.
  • The mobile music arena has become saturated with a variety of music apps. There are apps to play existing music, apps to stream personalized radio, apps to identify songs, apps to play commercial radio and apps for everything in between. FierceMobileContent helps readers identify the music apps that do it right in this feature.
  • Who are the worst wireless CEOs of all time? Either through lack of foresight, the inability to alter strategies quickly enough to changing market conditions, inept communication skills or a combination of all, there are a few high-profile wireless CEOs who have botched the job. We picked a few of the most high-profile executive flops and highlighted them here.
  • On the flipside, there have also been executives who have come in and righted the ship, often through remarkable headwinds and against the odds. These comeback kids often charted radically different courses than their predecessors because that was precisely what was needed at the time. We profiled the top wireless turnaround CEOs here.
  • In this one-on-one interview, Bob Azzi, senior vice president of networks at Sprint Nextel, talks about the long-term advantages of Sprint's network management deal with Ericsson, the company's plans for managing mobile data demand and how the firm plans to incorporate Wi-Fi offloading into its toolbox.

I hope you enjoy all our coverage. Look for more creative and interesting content from the Fierce editorial team next week: I'll bring you news from the 4G World conference in Chicago and Phil Goldstein will be reporting the latest from Nokia World in London. --Sue
