Why Develop ODP’s


Lower costs, both for getting new devices operational and for evolving on
-
device and
network services. Also, application certification costs go down significantly.



Faster time to market, again for both devices and services that integrate with the
handset.



Greater monetization potential of subscribers due to the availability of more content
and applications, especially niche content and apps, which are of relevance to niche
audiences.

can be easily delivered through ODP’s



Consumers, who demand an improved interface for their mobile experience

Carriers are Changing

Carriers are changing how they deal with content providers:

Side Loading

What is side loading of an ODP?

Side loading is the process of taking content or applications and loading it from

a secondary device or system to your phone


PC to Phone


Micro SD to Phone


Removable storage will increase in use as ODP’s become wider developed and wider

Distributed through side loading applications, widgets, and content to the phone. No

longer will the carriers be able to tell the brands, hardware, applications, and

gaming/social networking companies what can be loaded and used on the phone


Side loading these applications and tools through an ODP or in the case of brands and

advertisers being able to give the client a branded application enabled with your

applications, content, and organized how you would like the users to view and consume

this can now be achieved better through side loading of ODP’s


Market Projections


$1.3 Billion by 2009 Projected Revenues


In 2005 there were (20) companies world

wide involved in ODP development


In 2008 the number of companies involved
