Zamano, the mobile data services company quoted on AIM and IEX, last week launched a joint venture with Pixelsoup, a leader in interactive design, to develop a set of automated publishing tools for smartphones.
Publish-i (http://www.publish-i.com) will help companies publish image-rich publications such as comics, magazines and match programmes as smartphone applications through channels such as Apple’s App Store and Google’s Android Market. This will enable publishers to expand the reach of niche content and deliver and monitise high quality time-sensitive content globally.
Publish-i’s joint CEO Philip Lynch commented “we’re very excited by the prospect of delivering highly interactive, top quality graphical content to millions of smartphone users worldwide “. John O’Shea, zamano CEO added ” this initiative is a key element of zamano’s strategy to target growth areas within the telecommunications sector. Smartphones currently represent less than 10% of mobile handsets, but forecasters expect exponential growth in the years ahead. We aim to serve this burgeoning market on a global basis ”
