This week the company has announced that its Mobile Software Management solutions for over-the-air updates and device management have been shipped in a total of 750 million devices worldwide. In Q1 2010 its software was embedded in 70 million mobile phones and connected devices, which means nearly one in four new mobile handsets was 'Red Bend Enabled'.
Yoram Salinger, Red Bend Software's CEO, said "The growing worldwide adoption of mobile software management across mobile phones and other segments of the mobile device market — including telematics and M2M — led to our strongest quarter ever in shipments. Mobile devices, which have become essential to the lifestyles of billions of people, are increasingly complex and require ever-more sophisticated software. Device manufacturers and service providers trust Red Bend for our proven success in managing mobile software and connected devices so they can deliver the features and performance innovations that consumers demand."
