Ikivo AB, a provider of SVG software solutions for mobile devices announced today that their Mobile SVG clients have been shipped in more than 150 million devices worldwide and estimate that more than 225 million devices with Mobile SVG Tiny clients have been shipped globally.

"Ikivo is outpacing the perennial growth in Mobile Devices by growing 50% in units shipped with our Mobile SVG Tiny technology over the last 6 months" says Stefan Elmstedt, CEO at Ikivo. "New Rich Media services such as Mobile TV, Music and On Device portals are rapidly being developed and deployed using Mobile SVG Tiny. We also see new innovative services on the desktop such as the JOOST service from the founders of Skype which uses SVG for their UI instead of using proprietary desktop technologies like Flash. This is all very encouraging"

In combination with commercially available content design and development tools, such as Ikivo Animator, Java Netbeans and Adobe Creative Suite 2. Mobile SVG offers the most capable and fastest growing 2D graphical technology for the mobile world.
