PHOENIX – April 22, 2008 – The Cell Phone Junkie, one of the nation’s leading cellphonejunkieindependent podcasts devoted to the cell phone industry, will release its 100th program on April 27, 2008, according to founder and host Mickey Papillon.

“We’re extremely excited to be doing our 100th program,” said Papillon, a longtime cell phone user and an authority on mobile phone technology. “Since our inception in 2006, The Cell Phone Junkie programs have been downloaded by more than 100,000 listeners, so we believe we’re providing a valuable service to many people. Worldwide, there are approximately 3 billion cell phone users and, in some countries, cell phone penetration is actually more than 100 percent.”

Joining Papillon on the April 27 program will be co-host Joey Koppes of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Also appearing on the show are David Ciccone, Founder, www.mobilitytoday.com, of Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, Dieter Bohn, VP of Communities, www.smartphoneexperts.com, of Inverness, Florida, and Rob Walsh, Founder, www.podcast411.com and www.todayiniphone.com, of Overland Park, Kansas. All are considered experts in the cell phone industry.

Recent podcasts have dealt with such diverse subjects as the popular Apple iPhone, the $20 billion government auction of radio spectrum to industry service providers and the benefits of cell phones over traditional landline phones. A March podcast even discussed the British government’s decision to test the installation of soft padding on streetlamps in London because so many citizens have been walking into them inadvertently while talking on their cell phones.

“Obviously there is a humorous side to the cell phone industry,” Papillon said. “It’s not just about new products and software updates. The cell phone industry is changing rapidly and we receive dozens of questions about the technology, the industry and the issues.”
