Smartel.mobi, a six month old prepaid business reseller has re-branded itself as Bluegreen Mobile. The Smartel website doesn't say why. I imagine there are all sorts of conspiracy theories about what Smartel might have done that necessitated them to change their name.
It turns out there's a rather benign reason for the name change. There are a number of business around the world named Smartel including Smartel, Inc, a Denver based company founded in 2008 that helps businesses' manage their cell phone expenses. Smartel, Inc sent Smartel LLC , the business reseller, a cease and desist letter and Smartel LLC probably decided it was time for a new name. How do I know this? A Google search for "smartel cease and desist" turns up a posting on legal advice site Avvo.com, where someone claiming to be an officer of Smartel LLC told their sad story and was advised to get a new name and be sure and do a trademark search this time.
