NEW YORK -- Vringo, Inc. (NYSE Amex: VRNG), a provider of software platforms for mobile social and video applications, today announced an agreement with ZTE Corporation (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), the largest handset maker in China and fourth-largest globally, to preload Vringo’s Facetones™ application on Android handsets manufactured by ZTE. These handsets will be sold via mobile phone operators and through various OEM contracts to brand name handset makers.
Vringo’s Facetones™ application integrates with Facebook® and provides a new way to get automatic, visually exciting social content each time a user makes or receives a phone call. Vringo’s app will be one of the first mobile social apps to be embedded on Android mobile handsets manufactured by ZTE and immediately available to consumers when they start using their new phones.
“Vringo’s Facetones application is gaining broad market acceptance,” said Jon Medved, Vringo’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our recent launch of Facetones in Verizon’s V CAST Apps in the United States, combined with this deal with ZTE to preload Facetones on Android devices represents significant new opportunities for us that set the stage for continuing our growth. Making Facetones available through an embedded application at the time of sale is the easiest way to reach prospective customers. We believe it will help drive the viral nature of our product as it gets introduced to an entirely new audience around the world.”
