Mobileffects is among a small but growing number of
independent mobile content stores to enter the rapidly
expanding mobile content market. According to analysis
firm Consect, ringtones rang up $4 billion in revenues
worldwide in 2004, with sales doubling in the U.S.
In the U.S. alone, mobile game downloads are expected
to generate $1.8 billion annually within four years –
a ten-fold increase from 2003 levels – market researcher
In-Stat/MDR forecasts. This market traditionally dominated
by the mobile carriers has opened up in the past year
due to billing and delivery agreements that allow
independent stores access to billions of mobile users.
BVRP has been developing mobile content delivery, editing
and synchronization tools for over six years. Its Mobile
PhoneTools software, which allows users to exchange content
between a PC and mobile phone through Bluetooth, IrDA and
USB, is bundled with mobile phones from Motorola and other
leading manufacturers. Mobileffects extends the range of
delivery options for BVRP’s customers by providing over
the air (OTA) delivery of content from the PC to the
mobile phone through the carrier network.
