We wanted to give you some additional information about today’s announcement regarding the Brightstar 20:20 program, as this is an exciting additional outlet for NQ Mobile products and services. Brightstar 20:20 is a global enterprise (business-to-business) program with a strong presence in Pan-European countries that provides cutting-edge business services and solutions, including distribution and value-added solutions. Through the program, resellers provide their enterprise customers with leading mobile handset brands, accessories, insurance, cellular airtime and on-device services like NQ Mobile Security.
Starting in the UK with HTC, the program is expected to extend to Brightstar’s multiple points of presence across Europe and to include additional selected manufacturers. As featured in the June issue of Mobile Today, HTC is collaborating with Brightstar to provide resellers with access to their full portfolio of products. NQ Mobile Security will be licensed and bundled with Android devices such as the HTC One (M8) and will feature simplified activation. Brightstar 20:20 also plans to include other manufacturers’ products in the program, with NQ Mobile Security, of course. We are honored to have won this opportunity with Brightstar 20:20.
