Info2cell, Middle East mobile information services provider, finished GITEX 2000 in a buoyant mood following key deals that not only add to the company's rich mobile information content, but that will also take the Jordanian/UAE company into new world markets.
During GITEX, Info2Cell signed a deal with leading European mobile information services company Acotel that will see a $4 million investment in Info2cell by Acotel, along with a number of strategic product, service and content moves that will bring Acotel's technologies to Middle East users and Info2cell's content to markets in Europe and the Americas.
The company also announced that it is to embark on a major new project to bring BBCArabic.com content to mobile users. The deal also marks the launch of Arabic language mobile information services in the Middle East and other world regions for the first time.
Other key alliances were confirmed between Info2cell and partners during GITEX, with announcements expected soon after the show, according to a company press release.
Info-Cell.com is the pioneer in wireless information services for the Middle East, North Africa and the Indian Subcontinent. The company is the first WAP wireless information provider in the Middle East, having demonstrated its Info2cell.com WAP portal in live action since January 2000.
Info2Cell.com is the preferred WAP content provider for Siemens mobile phones in the Middle East and is in an alliance with Siemens to educate the regional market on WAP technology and its applications. — (Albawaba-MEBG)
