“The GSMA Award gave us a real push. One year later we have gained a lot of users, new operator customers, new partners and new funding. We have now started the journey going for global reach and we already see a nice uptake of our products in Asia”, says Trond Ingebretsen, CEO of Numo.

The Numo products available are:

  • Numo Finder - GSMA Global Awards 2009 winner, a mobile caller-ID and interactive global mobile phonebook. More info here,

Later this spring the company will launch new products like the Numo Autosync and the Numo Company Phonebook.

“The pilot customers of these new mobile apps are exited and our goal is of course to make them our next GSMA winners”, says Trond Ingebretsen.

In February 2010, Numo received the Nokia Ovi Top App 2009 award, in recognition that the SMS Preview is one of the most downloaded mobile applications last year.
