mig33, the world’s largest mobile-first community, today launched mig33 for Android, a much-anticipated, feature-rich version of the mobile social entertainment service that has already attracted more than 40 million registered users worldwide – and a version that radically widens mig33’s opportunity for future growth.
mig33 for Android squarely positions mig33 for continued success, as low-cost Android offerings are expected to soar worldwide and – in particular – in the emerging, mobile-first regions that have seen mig33’s Java and WAP versions help it grow to be the largest mobile-first community ever.
Today’s launch of the mig33 for Android (beta) means mig33’s games, chat features, virtual goods and other social entertainment services are now available on any Android mobile device, and may also soon be available pre-installed on new Android mobile devices manufactured by handset makers in China, Taiwan, and beyond.
The emergence of Android, for these consumers, means more opportunity – and desire – to participate in popular mobile social networks like mig33. India, for example, is one region in which mig33 has serious potential to continue its rapid growth due to Android. In October, GigaOM – the well-respected tech blog of the GigaOM Network – wrote, “It appears that low-priced Android phones are poised to jump on India’s newest mobile broadband networks over the next four years, welcoming up to 500 million new mobile web users. mig33 for Android (beta) is available now at m.mig33.com for Android 2.1 and higher.
