INDEPENDENT mobile infotainment service integrator iGuanaMobile Sdn Bhd has signed an agreement with Beijing Hong Xin Xun Men Pte Ltd (Hong Xin), paving the way for it to penetrate the lucrative Chinese market.
The agreement, signed yesterday during the Showcase Malaysia in China 2004 exhibition and witnessed by Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Dr Jamaludin Jarjis, would allow iGuanaMobile to leverage on Hong Xin's nationwide mobile gateway in China to launch its premium mobile infotainment services.
