Australian mobile solutions provider, MIA International has been selected to provide technology and content solutions for Motorola’s new Android devices in Australia & New Zealand.  Motorola’s range of 3G Android-powered devices include the Motorola DEXT™ and Motorola BACKFLIP™, which have been launched exclusively to Optus customers.

MIA technology has enabled the content solution that provides the news and information feeds for the MOTOBLUR™ experience, as well as incorporating the My Moto™ entertainment content, which includes games, MP3 ringtones, wallpapers, animations and full track audio and video.

MIA’s Chief Operating Officer, Jon Mooney has indicated that the company is excited by the enormous growth of the Android platform to date; he said that Google’s Android Market application storefront now boasts more than 38,000 apps and that the Android platform is really gaining momentum with 60,000 new Android devices being activated per day.
