CDG Device Corner: An online marketplace to enable the growth of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications for smart wireless modules and devices. This free Web-based portal, (www.devicecorner.com), allows buyers and sellers to exchange information about CDMA2000 and multi-mode modules and devices, including integrated solutions. 

Device Corner allows registered sellers to post information about products, and permits potential buyers to view that information without registration. If a viewer finds a module or solution to purchase, he can complete a free registration before receiving the seller’s contact information. Likewise, registered buyers may post information about their unique needs, and solution providers can obtain more information via the same registration process. There is no charge for use of Device Corner or sales made as a result of its use.
