December 7th, 2009 – SPB Software, a leading mobile software developer, is proud to inform that SPB TV, its mobile IPTV software, has received one of three winner’s awards in Media category of Google’s prestigious ADC2 contest. SPB Software has won this award in competition with 199 other nominees of Round II, 19 of them in the same category.
The competition was especially tough due to Google’s innovative and inventive approach to the voting system. Users could participate in the evaluation process only by downloading ADC2 software from Android Market. During the second stage of the competition users were randomly offered two hundred applications, one by one. After they evaluated an application and gave it a respective rating, it disappeared from their smartphones. We believe such conditions make our achievement even more exciting.
The Android Developer Challenge is something really special for us, – says SPB Software CEO Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, – This victory is important for two reasons. First, SPB Software regards Android as one of the most prospective platforms with growing deployment base. Second, SPB TV is one of our strategically most important products, and the award will earn it a wider acceptance.
SPB Software thank all the users who voted for our product. We regard such an honor as an obligation to broaden our line-up of Android software along with improving the quality of existing applications.
