Nubiq; One Year Anniversary

Posted in Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2007 by nubiq

Last month marked the one year anniversary of Nubiq. The last 12 months have been a really exciting and busy time for us here in Nubiq. We have seen our company grow from strength to strength; with two product launches, eight new product updates, and several strategic partnerships with companies in the mobile Web industry. 

The launch of Nubiq in September 2006 also marked the release of our first major product –; a free mobile website creation tool. Since then Zinadoo has accumulated thousands of users from across the world; we have conducted pan-European trials of the service with 5 mobile operators; undergone six new product updates and a complete revamp of the service. The latest Zinadoo update included global SMS support and  the launch of “Zinadoo Mobile”, which provides users with the ability to create a mobile website from their mobile handset; taking the mobility of the service one step further.  

By offering a mobile community of users that increases mobile browsing and opens up new revenue generating streams, Zinadoo has already proven to be an attractive package for Mobile Operators, or anyone wishing to extend their Web based community to the mobile space. For our users, the service is still FREE and we keep adding new features to the service, making Zinadoo the easiest tool to use on the market today. 

In July Nubiq partnered with T-Mobile in the Netherlands to conduct a trial of Zinadoo in conjunction with their Web’n’Walk service. The trial was a huge success and demonstrated the massive appeal of new data services in the Dutch market. Closer to home, we also partnered with O2 Ireland. You will now find a link to Zinadoo on the O2 Active mobile portal, opening up a new world to all O2 subscribers who wish to create their own mobile presence in a matter of minutes. 

Nubiq have also launched two more services -MobiSeer and Nubiq Professional Services. With so many people accessing the Web from their mobile handset now, it is hard to know what websites have been optimised for the mobile Web. With MobiSeer you can bookmark all your favourite mobile websites and then view them from any mobile device.  

Throughout the year Nubiq has worked closely with the dotMobi Mobile Advisory Group (MAG). Working with like minded organisations such as dotMobi and other companies involved in the MAG we have finally setting some standards and guidelines around how we develop for this space and how we can make it a better experience for the end user.  

Over the next year Nubiq will continue to bring you new and innovative mobile Web services and will have many more exciting announcements to make over the coming period!
