NORWALK, Conn., Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Defentect Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DFTC), a developer and provider of immediate intelligent messaging software solutions, announced today that the Company has committed to a second quarter release of its DefenCall application and service for the Android operating system. The original version of DefenCall, the only application on the market to enable a user to broadcast his or her exact location in the event of an emergency, has been available to iPhone and iPod Touch users since June 2010.
According to Nielsen, the global leader in media information, TV, mobile and online research, Android is the single fastest-growing mobile platform in the overall US market. The same Nielsen study determined that 50% of Android users are under the age of 35 and that Apple has the most SmartPhone users under the age of 44. With the availability of iPhones on the Verizon network and the addition of the Android devices, the market size available to DefenCall will approximately double to triple in size.
"Our mission at Defentect is to enable as many people as possible to have access to help in the event of an emergency. Our recent strategic efforts have resulted in our DM3™ platform being marketed beyond the scope of radiation detection. Our SmartPhone initiative is the perfect example of how our core technology can be successfully integrated on both the individual and enterprise levels," commented James Ackerly, CEO of Defentect Group. "DefenCall's availability to both iPhone and Android users is vital to our marketing efforts in other areas, such as the colleges and universities. Statistics show that Android and Apple users easily make up more than half of the population of these schools. Android will be key to our acceptance in that market.."
