20111125 digital report

  1. 1. Week of November 21, 2011 Digital Report www.asiadigitalmap.com Since 2009 Tencent to launch iQQ – a mobile operating system (headline) As of late, Tencent has launched several good Android apps, including its Weibo platform and QQ mobile messenger. But despite some shaky attempts it has thus far lacked a coherent mobile platform. With iQQ, China’s Social Media giant tries to change this. Basically, the platform is a re- designed Android ROM with integrated QQ services such as QQ Mail, QQ Appstore and even its own Soso search engine. Compared with Baidu’s Yi OS, iQQ doesn’t look very convincing, but it’ll be interesting to see how it’ll be received.

But its cheap price and the lack of traditional marketing have lead to some significant buzz for the company. Now a test report by Anandtech gives this buzz substance. In a browser benchmark test comprising 13 categories, the M1 bested the likes of Samsung Galaxy SII, HTC Sensation and LG Optimus 3D in seven of the 13 categories. It’ll be very interesting to see how the public will receive the M1! Watch this space.

Tokyo-based Peepapp is set to tackle this problem. When a user registers with Peepapp, the software will automatically detect apps that are installed on the phone. For privacy’s sake, users can, however, hide apps. Friends can thereby rely on their friends as the source for good apps. Peepapp is smart enough to realise which brands are installed on a user’s phone and won’t bore her with apps she already uses. If the neat idea lives or dies will depend on the traction Peepapp will be able (or unable) to generate. Source: http://www.penn-olson.com/
