Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom, 2012/09/10 - Antix’s seamless game platform garners acclaim from Intent Media’s “Mobile Entertainment” magazine and others as Antix is selected as a “Top 50 Mobile Innovator” - AntixLabs.com.
Antix is pleased to announce that it has been chosen as a Top 50 Mobile Innovator for 2012 by a judging panel comprising VCs, analysts, entrepreneurs and the Mobile Entertainment [“ME”] team.
Tim Green, editor of ME, wrote that “ME’s Top 50 Mobile Innovators project was established last year to celebrate creative and successful representatives of the market we write about every day.”
Francis Charig, Chief Executive of Antix commented,“The Antix Game Player enables consumers to share and play socially high quality games across different devices even if their service provider’s network is slow, full or inaccessible and irrespective of platform differences between different Antix-enabled devices. The engineering team deserves this recognition for which I thank Tim Green and all of those on the judging panel involved in selecting Antix.”
Publisher Intent Media wrote [on its ME website, mobile-ent.biz],“Antix wants to bring gamers together across different device types using a smart wrapper. In theory, it could link the mobile gamer, the tablet gamer and the smart TV gamer in one seamless lag-free play session. It may be a familiar idea. Antix rose from the ashes of previous attempts to do this. But now it believes the market and the tech has caught up with the concept. The first deal with Telkomsel and MLW Telecom in Indonesia was done this summer.” Last week deals were announced including Vestel of Turkey and Haier of China.
