GetJar signs app store agreement with Optimus

We just announced another app store agreement with a leading mobile operator. This time it's with Optimus, Portugal's best-known wireless carrier. GetJar is providing an app store for Optimus so that the carrier's subscribers have access to hundreds of mobile applications and games.

App stores have become a focal point for carriers in recent months, spurred by Apple's App Store and, more recently, the Android Market. We recently signed a similar deal with the UK's 3 (, and we're working with various carriers around the world to implement app stores for them. Stay tuned for more!

We're really encouraged to see so many carriers turn to us for help deploying an app store. For our carrier partners, the value we offer is clear: they can quickly deploy a full-featured app store with almost zero capital expense, and then benefit from the increase in overall brand value and adoption of data plans (app stores drive data traffic and associated revenues). GetJar is currently running at more than 16 million downloads per month, serving mobile users from 135 countries.

Congratulations Ilya! I clearly see the value for operators to work with you guys.

Another thing you might wish to consider is your own downloadable on-device appstore... I'm sure you already evaluated this.

And congrats on the recent VP Marketing pick - good choice!

One of problems Im currently seeing is this re-porting of games from cell phones to these larger PDA,s. I personally appreciate that there bringing down prices on these PDA games.

But the truth is I miss the J2ME cell phone game industry , the websites like GetJar, Hovr, gamejump, gameloft, opera-mini, Zannel, Sprint Power Vision, Reqwireless, Greystripe, Micro-Google, and others

As much as the bigger screen, much more memory, more secure E-mail, ability to download bigger files are a turn-on, I find myself depressed over Motorola's or Windows decision to exclude the J2ME world from this bigger phone. The critical mass of the J2ME world of .jads & .jars just puts the best minds & the freshest game designs and tiny applications there.

While I swallow to say this It's almost inconsiderate of them to sell bigger devices that dont allow access to the J2ME Cell world we all grew up on.

Sincerely, mca5516
