Volantis Celebrates Device Library Milestone

David Murphy

Volantis Systems has revealed that it has passed the milestone of 7,000 handsets for its mobile device information library, which it says makes it the most comprehensive device library available on the market. The number of supported attributes and characteristics variables has also increased, from 650 up to 750 per device.
Recent figures from the Volantis Mobile Internet Attitudes Report 2010 revealed that more than one in 10 adults in the UK and the US are now accessing the mobile Internet more than once a day, with another one in five accessing it at least monthly. With this level of adoption set only to increase, the appetite for mobile Internet services that can react and adapt to the changing device landscape will result in significant opportunities for mobile operators in both the established and emerging markets, Volantis says.
The Volantis mobile device information library is used by operators, systems integrators and developers to offer compelling mobile Internet and application experiences to consumers around the world, regardless of their handset or mobile device. With the Volantis platform, developers can target a next-generation user experience for high-end mobile devices, while maintaining best-fit experiences for lower tier and legacy devices without compromise. For operators, this reduces exposure to commoditizing voice and SMS revenues by increasing data plan adoption from consumers across any device in their portfolio.
The mobile handset market has been greatly impacted by the recent surge in popularity of Smartphones," says Volantis CEO, Mark Watson. "As a result, operators and content providers have to adapt and futureproof their service offerings for subscribers, and keep pace with the speed with which these high-end, increasingly complex devices are launched. Our platform allows them to quickly and efficiently roll-out rich user experiences to their customers in a timely and accurate manner. The Volantis dedicated device team will continue to ensure that the very latest devices are supported as quickly as possible, to ensure maximum reach and sustain end user customer satisfaction."
