Last month, we announced the availability of Qik Premium for Android and the response was overwhelming. Android users rejoiced, as they gained access to an enhanced Qik Video experience that features added storage, video mail, Qik Desktop and more.
On the heels of the arrival of Qik Premium for Android, we are pleased to announce Qik Video for DOCOMO, which gives Qik Video users in Japan the ability to experience Qik Premium. Through our partnership with NTT DOCOMO, Qik Video will be preloaded on DOCOMO’s new Xi® tablet devices, ARROWS Tab F-01D and GALAXY Tab 10.1 SC-01D, all of which are scheduled to be released in October.
Our partnership with DOCOMO continues to build upon a tremendous amount of growth for Qik this year. In the last 7 1/2 months, Qik has more than doubled its total user base to 10.3MM users. The number of user recorded videos has almost doubled and the number of video chats has more than tripled during that same period of time. We are encouraged by these stats we owe a huge thank you for all of our users for continuing to use Qik to share their videos with friends and family.
