Implements Apkudo’s Carrier Pack to Ensure Desired Device Configuration

Washington, DC – June 27, 2016 – Today, Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) announced that Union Wireless (Union) has joined the CCA Device Hub, powered by Apkudo. Additionally, Union has implemented the Carrier Pack capability which allows carriers to manage the configuration of their devices, without the overhead and barrier-to-entry of requiring direct original equipment manufacturer (OEM) software customization.

Union trialed and tested the Carrier Pack technology with device manufacturer NUU Mobile and will distribute devices through YAM Wireless, the sole distributor for NUU Mobile products for the CCA Device Hub.

In a statement, CCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry said, “I am delighted Union Wireless is participating in the CCA Device Hub, which was created by CCA carrier members to help carriers streamline their device portfolios. Both Union and Apkudo are CCA members, and their strategic partnership through the Device Hub is just one of the many ways CCA’s industry development programs can benefit CCA members. Through the Hub and Carrier Pack, participating carriers like Union will be in a unique position to customize their device requirements to better serve their customers’ specific needs and desires. CCA members are deeply committed to providing the very best to their customers, and I am pleased the Hub will help them achieve this important goal.” “The CCA Device Hub and Carrier Pack are very beneficial to CCA member operators,” said Brian Woody, Chief Customer Relations Officer of Union Wireless. “With this platform, we have one place to choose devices, customize settings like APNs, and pre-load apps, and test and certify devices before launch. Providing Union Wireless customers with the best experience is paramount. Through this venture, we can provide an optimized experience for our customers on our network. Having control of the device experience, saves Union Wireless considerable time and resources, it gives us tools we didn’t have before.”

“OEMs are able to launch one generic software version for each device that allows Carrier Pack to provide custom device requirements simultaneously and independently for many carriers,” said Josh Matthews, Co-founder and CEO of Apkudo. “I applaud NUU Mobile for recognizing the efficiency and cost savings this brings to their business and Union Wireless for being the first to embrace this innovative, new technology.”

A world on the move needs NUU Konnect for secure, low-cost international roaming

ROCHESTER, Minn., June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — For business travelers tied to their mobile phones, international roaming has long been a torturous experience, and often a very expensive one. Thanks to NUU Mobile, those days are over.

The NUU Konnect, from NUU Mobile, enables seamless local-SIM switching for travelers to over 100 countries

NUU Mobile is now offering its NUU Konnect device, which enables seamless local SIM switching for international travelers to over 100 destination countries. The NUU Mobile vision is no less than a world without telecomm borders.

he NUU Konnect i1 allows the user to connect up to five devices by Wi-Fi (versions 802.11b/g/n), and these devices can then access multiple phone networks from multiple locations, enabled by NUU Mobile’s unique hybrid solution, which can switch automatically between a SIM bank and a multiple network-identity e-SIM, supported by multi-IMSI technology.

The result is low-cost roaming for both voice and data, with minimal set-up requirements based on simple Wi-Fi pairing, and support for multiple devices and form factors. NUU Mobile services include a comprehensive management tool and report, maintained with full service consistency, developed and supported by NUU Mobile’s in-house R&D team.

“The NUU Konnect can be used with any brand or type of mobile device,” explained Danny Sit, CEO at NUU Mobile. “The NUU Konnect automatically selects the fastest networks, delivering optimal service and support for more than 100 destinations. No time-consuming activation or registration procedures are required, making the NUU Konnect the perfect cost-effective roaming device for enterprises and their multi-destination travelers. For those who wish to optimize their productivity, the NUU Konnect is the industry-first, must-have answer.”

NUU Konnect – Optimized network availability

The NUU Konnect’s hybrid solution provides enormously enhanced service availability. Normally, a SIM bank can only provide a fixed amount of connections in a limited number of countries. As a result, when a MiFi device is oversubscribed at times of peak network traffic, travelers might experience service interruption. The NUU Konnect i1’s hybrid design eliminates this type of network latency. It ensures immediate service availability and enables support for quality of service (QoS).

The NUU Konnect i1, a 4G LTE device, is available now. This LTE version supports both normal voice calling, via the PSTN, and SMS. The NUU Konnect i1 enables PSTN voice-call service through the NUU Konnect app, and consequently there is none of the reduction in voice quality typical of VoIP (voice over IP).

In addition, the NUU Konnect i1 offers a virtual private network (VPN) option. Should corporate users wish to increase the access control of their travelers, this VPN option can enhance the level of access security. When this is combined with web-based access control and traffic reporting, the result is a total communications solution for enterprises with employees frequently on the move.

NUU Mobile provides a complete access-control, data-management, QoS and billing infrastructure, which delivers company and personal-usage profiling and billing. In addition, NUU Mobile offers a corporate management tool. Its capabilities include access control, traffic control, and separate billing based on access. Corporate employees can manage it over a web-based administration console.

NUU Mobile’s complete spectrum of customer service includes round-the-clock customer and technical support, staffed by both English and Chinese speaking representatives.

Congrats, you’re a part of it now.

A few days ago, we had a Skype call with our friends at Android Authority. We’d been collaborating on a giveaway of our new X4 device — five brand new devices for our fans around the world. After weeks of planning, we were finally ready.

We were excited. Optimistic. And maybe a little nervous.

Our Android Authority friends chuckled.

“Just turn your phone to silent,” they said. “It’s gonna be blowing up all week.”

Boy, was that an understatement.

In just a few days, we’ve gained thousands of fans from across the globe — from the United States to Australia, from India to Brazil, from France to Mozambique. People are excited about the X4’s sleek design and stunning price, and they’re showing their love.

Now, we’re not naïve. We know a lot of these people are just looking for a free phone. We don’t blame them, either — free stuff is awesome. Best of luck, guys!

But many of you, well, it seems like you’re looking for something more. You’re curious about us — who’s this unknown brand that came out of nowhere? Can they be trusted? Are their phones any good?

To make a long story short — you’ve got questions.

And we’re going to try to answer them here.

Who is NUU Mobile?

We’re an international team of engineers, designers, and hardcore Android geeks. We have headquarters in Minnesota (USA) and Hong Kong.

Our offices are sprouting up on five continents — just last year, we opened new branches in London, Tokyo, Miami, Amsterdam, and Jakarta.

Are you guys ‘new’? Haha, get it?

I’m Back by Jelly Dude licensed under CC BY 2.0

Oh yes, we get it. Puns are awesome. We love puns.

But in all seriousness, we’ve been around a while. And we’ve made a nice impression on people so far.

Check out what AndroidGuys had to say about NUU.

Or watch us for yourself on the ‘All About Android’ netcast.

Cool, but how are you different?

Let’s break this down into three parts:

Our phones are guaranteed to be reliable and well-built.

In fairness, this is what every smartphone company says. So let’s get into some specifics.

First, we build all our devices in our own factories. This lets us control every step of the process, from design to testing to final production.

More importantly, it gives us the confidence to offer a two-year warranty on all our smartphones. We know our phones are high-quality, so we’re not afraid to stand behind them.

Our phones are secure and stable.

We know that keeping your personal information safe has never been more important. So we’re working closely with Google to ensure that our devices are Google Mobile Services-certified, which keeps you up-to-date with the latest bug fixes and Android Security Patches.

And we make staying secure easy with our free over-the-air updates (OTAs) — a single tap of your finger keeps your device running smooth and safe.

Our phones help you save money.

Unlocked phones have many benefits, but here’s the biggest one: they’re simply more affordable.

With a NUU Mobile phone, you’re free to pick the best carrier in your area — you don’t have to commit to a long-term contract, or sign up for an expensive subsidy plan that will have you making phone payments for the next two years.

And with devices ranging from $79 to $299, you won’t have to look too hard for a great phone to fit your budget.

NUU Mobile’s Promise to You

We hope we’ve answered some of your biggest questions. But if you’re still curious about us, we’d love to help.

We mean it.

Seriously.

We know that we have to earn your trust. When you’re shopping for a new smartphone, you have hundreds of choices. Some companies may offer fancier specs, some may offer lower prices.

But nobody cares like NUU Mobile. Because, to be honest, we have to — our success depends on your happiness.

So if there’s anything we can do to put a smile on your face, we’ll do it.

Thanks again for joining us — we can’t wait to hear from you!

Ambitious tech startup unveils partnership with NBA’s hottest young team

Nov. 10, 2015 MINNEAPOLIS — NUU Mobile is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Minnesota Timberwolves for the 2015-2016 season.

NUU Mobile, a manufacturer and distributor of unlocked Android™ smartphones, joins forces with the NBA franchise at an intriguing time. The Wolves feature the #1 overall draft picks from the previous two drafts, 2015 Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns, the presumptive favorite for this year’s award.

“NUU Mobile and the Timberwolves have a lot in common,” said Janel Nnaji, Director of Branding and Marketing for NUU Mobile. “We’re fresh, dynamic, and full of potential. So there’s a natural partnership here. We both have strong local roots and international appeal. And we have some exciting plans for the future. It’s going to be a great season for the Wolves. All of us at NUU Mobile can’t wait to show our support.”

Launched in 2012, NUU Mobile has steadily expanded across the globe thanks to the popularity of its line of premium-quality, affordably priced smartphones. With partners in Hong Kong and growing distribution networks throughout North and South America, the company is quickly becoming a global leader in the highly competitive smartphone market.

The Timberwolves are also continuing their rise to the ranks of the NBA’s elite. Thanks to the influx of young talent and the return of veterans like Spanish sensation Ricky Rubio and 15-time All Star Kevin Garnett, the franchise is widely considered one of the league’s most promising teams.

As part of the sponsorship agreement, NUU Mobile will provide in-game interactive entertainment during select Timberwolves home games. In addition, NUU Mobile will sponsor free product giveaways during College Night promotions. The smartphone company will also help the Wolves introduce promising new players on social media, including Towns, first-round pick Tyus Jones (a Minnesota native), and European imports Nemanja Bjelica and Damjan Rudez.

Nnaji believes that the partnership will soon reap great rewards for both parties. “As a lifelong Minnesotan and Timberwolves fan, I couldn’t be happier,” she says. “This is the start of something big.”

We rank the best people, moments, and memories from the #BABBQ15.

All good tech conferences must come to an end. The lights fade, the dust settles, and you’re left with nothing but a swag bag of whimsical tchotchkes and a “There is not enough available storage to ______” warning on your phone. Nostalgia stirs, swift and inevitable.

The pulled pork sandwiches were so thick and meaty they hurt the feelings of local vegans.

The Big Android BBQ 2015 may be over, but its memories will live forever in our hearts. Until next year, at least, when our hearts are upgraded with better memories (more explosions! more robots! more savvy insights about C++ development!). Is it 2016 yet? No? Waiting is the worst.

To help take the edge off, we’ve compiled a #BABBQ15 All-Star list — the juiciest tidbits from the world’s sauciest Android™ convention. Share and enjoy.

Best Real Talk

The BABBQ15 featured a smorgasbord of fascinating presentations. From the high-energy stylings of “App Standby vs. Doze” to the surprisingly lifelike “Building Your VR Sandbox”, there was no shortage of people standing behind podiums.

But the “Anatomy of a Phone Review” fireside chat with Russell Holly and Jerry Hildenbrand was truly sublime, as the two Android Central heavyweights guided listeners through a tour of the phone review sausage factory. When one sanctimonious attendee voiced his contempt for spelling errors, Russell and Jerry were gentle but firm. “We write millions of words a year,” they told the grammar fascist, “so basic math says we’re gonna make a few mistakes.”

Well played, sirs.

This is what pwning review n00bs looks like.

Best Dressed

As one would expect from a gathering of tech developers and smartphone enthusiasts, fashion was at the forefront of the Big Android BBQ. Notables included ticket-taking kid in a kilt and the dozens of convention-goers wearing threadbare Android™ beanies. The undisputed High Lord of Haberdasheries, though, was an IDEAA rep known only as “The Top Hat Guy”, whose vertically prodigious headwear and steampunk aviator’s goggles helped him stand out in a sea of branded polos and khaki shorts.

Best Booth

If anyone tries to tell you that sitting in the Swappa Phone Throne wasn’t his favorite part of the BABBQ15, you call that person a liar. Then you spit in his mead, and steal his wolfskin cloak.

Winter is coming, y’all.

He’s got the beard of a Northman, alright…

Best Swag

Facebook gave out free metallic vacuum flasks at their booth. The flasks were well-designed, easy to use, and highly addictive — many attendees seemed unable to stop drinking from them for more than a few minutes.

Best Food

The pulled pork sandwiches were so thick and meaty they hurt the feelings of local vegans.

Best Drink

Would you believe that Cosmopolitans were the most popular drink at the Big Android BBQ? We didn’t, when we first heard the news. But after multiple confirmed sightings of “a kind of reddish-looking liquor in one of those skinny martini glasses”, it’s hard to remain skeptical. Cosmos über alles.

Best Activity

With so many attractions competing for their attention, some BBQers could be forgiven for feeling a bit overwhelmed. There were, of course, the requisite pool parties and secret coding competitions. But there were also viciously competitive MarioKart tourneys, and — best of all — a giant tricycle race.

If you’re too proud to ride an adult-sized Big Wheel, you’re dead to us.

Zoom. Zoom zoom. Zoom zoom, zoom.

Best Conclusion to a Blog Post

We miss the BABBQ. Is it 2016 yet?

NUU Mobile releases their first Z Series unlocked phone.  The Z8 brings speed and performance to those who want a maximized mobile experience.

NUU Mobile is proud to bring its first flagship phone to market, offering great features such as Lollipop, Android’s™ latest operating system, and a screen size comparable to an iPhone 6 Plus at 5.5”. This device is a part of the Z Series, offering the highest quality phones at a fraction of the cost.

Binge-watch your favorite shows on Netflix on the FHD 1920 x 1080p screen. The screen’s crystal clarity will wow you, and the seamless streaming is a viewing experience to be thrilled about.

The Z8 is available in black and white with a brushed finish giving it a unique texture that you won’t find elsewhere.

Like other NUU Mobile Android™ smartphones, the Z8 offers dual SIMs, expandable storage and removable battery. It has 4G LTE speed and comes in 16 or 32GB. With these storage choices you’ll get to decide which avenue is right for you and there will be no need to conserve storage space by deleting music and pictures and all the things you want.

And did we mention the camera!? The 13MP rear camera with Sony® optics produces breathtaking images that will make your memories last a lifetime. The 8MP front camera can capture any selfie, making sure your Snapchat and Instagram game is on point. The front camera even has a wide angle lens, so when your friends photobomb you, you’ll catch it.

Impress your friends and family with the gesture commands your Z8 is packed with. These fun shortcuts include Tap-to-Wake, Wave-to-Mute, Flip-to-Mute, Shake-to-Light and O-to-Open Camera. While your peers are fumbling clumsily to open their apps and adjust their settings, you’re only a gesture away from what you need.

This Lollipop phone is well suited for the most tech-savvy of people all while being user friendly enough for someone with limited experience using a smartphone. So whether you’re still using a flip phone and making a transition, or you’ve always owned the best of the best, the Z8 is the perfect match for you.

We aspire to bring top-quality phones to consumers looking for the ultimate smartphone experience. We hope that our flagship Z8 phone is exactly what you’re looking for.
