Critical Path, a leading provider of messaging software and services, and PT. Supertone (SPC Mobile), an Indonesian handset manufacturer and distributor, have partnered to deliver mobile social media applications to the Indonesian market.
Critical Path’s mobile social networking and media applications will be pre-loaded onto a variety of SPC handsets. The applications include:
— Multimedia Uploading and Sharing: With just one click subscribers can send photos, videos or status updates to their favourite social networks — Phone Backup: Subscribers can back-up, and synchronize their personal content and contacts, seamlessly over the air ensuring the safety and security of their handset. — Mobile Email: Subscribers can send and receive email simply through MMS, SMS or WAP. No smart phone or complicated email client required.
“We are very excited about our partnership with SPC Mobile and expanding our presence in the rapidly growing Indonesian market,” said Mark Palomba, CEO, Critical Path. “Embedding social applications like ShoZu on the handset allows operators to quickly launch new offerings, while also making it easy for subscribers to adopt those services.”
“There is a strong and growing demand for mobile social applications in Indonesia,” said Raymond Tedjokusumo, General Manager, SPC Mobile. “We are delighted to be partnering with Critical Path to deliver a superior application experience across our broad range of mobile handsets.”
Leading Indonesian mobile operators, Indosat and 3, will be the first operators to go to market with the SPC/Critical Path offer. The offering, branded “Go Social”, bundled with a data pricing plan, will begin shipping on sub-USD 80 Boss series handsets in July, 2010.
