Xumanii (DBA Imerjn) has launched its file sharing service, accessible directly from the Imerjn website.
"We will be developing several proprietary apps that will preload onto our tablet computers in addition to partnering with providers of third party apps,” said Adam Radly, CEO, Imergn. “File sharing is a fundamental app that will likely be used by almost all of our users in conjunction with all other Imerjn products and apps."
Cloud storage is popular but not yet ubiquitous - roughly 55% of "connected Americans" have never used a cloud-storage service (according to research conducted by Strategy Analytics).
"On the one hand, everyone knows what cloud storage is and they know that they need it, but, on the other hand, approximately half of the country has never used it. This means that there is a definite opportunity and our timing is good," said Radly.
The research also found that "usage of cloud storage is heavily skewed towards younger people, in particular 20-24 year olds." Approximately 90% of the "connected Americans" used their cloud-storage service to upload music files.
"The cloud's role in the race to win over consumers' digital media libraries has evolved from a value added service for digital content purchases to a feature-rich and increasingly device agnostic digital locker for music and movies," said Ed Barton, Strategy Analytics' Director of Digital Media, in a statement.
Imerjn recently announced its entry into the tablet computer market with an Imerjn branded tablet and also announced the acquisition of an issued patent relating to technology that enables mobile transaction processing. The company will provide more detail about the release dates of the tablet before the end of this month.
"The establishment of the file sharing service is the first of several apps that are at various stages of development and is part of our overall strategy to build an integrated mobile technology company. We need to bring several elements together in order to optimize our mobile strategy and we are making progress. We will provide more information about other apps in the near future,” Radly concluded.
