If you think about where the mobile landscape was just five years ago, the difference is mind blowing. Recent research shows that 91% of American adults carry a cell phone and 55% carry a smartphone. And what are people doing with those smartphones? Well, Juniper Research thinks that by 2017 there will be over 160 billion app downloads.
The only thing better than a successful app is a new hardware platform to run it on.
You’ll be glad to know that Amazon Fire TV is built around the Snapdragon 600 processor. That puts you in the fast lane to a new platform, audience and marketplace for your Android apps optimized for Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors.
Did you know that an estimated one billion smart phones shipped in 2013? That’s one billion potential customers for your apps. And even better, estimates show eight billion cumulative units forecasted between 2014 and 2018 (source: Gartner, March 2014). That’s a huge amount of potential! Are you ready to take advantage of it? One of the best ways is by ensuring your apps capitalize on the built-in capabilities in those phones.
