More growth in Asia showed Malaysia growing by 1,332 percent, and an incredible 2,820 percent increase among active users in Philippines. Of course the answer is no – as creative and cost-efficient mobile web (“Over-the-Top”) applications catch fire throughout the developed and developing world. China’s hotter-than-ever Internet services and  real time communications powerhouse, Tencent, whose profits soared as reported during the last earnings season this year.
They are “aggressively” pouring their cash into new in-house and third party applications, videos, new services and mobile RTC capabiltiies.
For example, Tencent has integrated online-payment functions into the app, so customers can pay, bank and manage their accounts. The phenomenon of social applications as distribution channels was one reason behind Japanese billionaire Hiroshi Mikitani’s acquisition Viber for $900 million.


No doubt there will be lots of discussion and collaboration around these substantial trends, including the stunning success of WeChat – and how their innovation will inspire – if not force – change as the very idea of mobile communications is being redefined – globally.
