10.04.2012 / 09:09
Frankfurt, 10 April 2012. Vtion Anzhuo, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vtion
Wireless Technology AG, has reached 10,000 total mobile applications
available through its three sales channels, China´s telecom operators,
device manufacturer partners and its own online appstore, named ´V-Market´.
The online store had been operational since March 01, 2012.
The V-Market is Vtion Anzhuo´s own online download platform and store for
applications on the Android operating system. Currently, the store offers
8,000 applications for users to download, a number Vtion intends to
increase over the course of the year. The remainder of the 10,000
applications that Vtion Anzhuo offers are sold through its other sales
channels - China´s telecom operators and device manufacturers. Currently
the vast majority of applications are available for free download, though
the company hopes to increase the number of paid downloads over the course
of the year and begin realizing revenues from the V-Market.
Though there are several online application stores for the Android system
operating in China, the V-Market differentiates itself through only using
licensed applications, unique offerings and a secure online payment
platform. The V-Market is one of three sales channels that Vtion Anzhuo
uses to distribute its applications. Vtion Anzhuo also sells via a
shop-in-shop model through each of the telecom operators´ online app stores
and has agreements with several device manufacturers to put the V-Market in
their hardware. The V-Market can be viewed on the website www.51vapp.com,
while the company website can be viewed under www.vapk.com.cn.
´The V-Market has successfully operated for a full month now, ´ states Vtion
CEO Guoping Chen. ´We are excited to expand our business in the mobile
applications space, a market we expect to show rapid growth over the next
few years. Though we face a major challenge insofar as it has proven more
difficult to monetize application offerings for the Android platform, we
are addressing this issue proactively, such as looking at revenue sharing
agreements and payments for usage of apps as opposed to payment for
download. We believe that through our unique sales channels and superior
quality, we are well-positioned to take advantage of this opportunity, ´ he
