With more than 300 partners registered in the first week after B.Shark launched its mobile payment API, B.Shark continued to introduce the payment API for tablets. With the B.Shark’s BSpay API, tablet manufacturers will be able to charge consumers from other countries, which would be a new option to increase tablet manufacturer revenue.
The latest IDC report shows that the worldwide shipment of tablets has reached 18 million in 2010. Market research Company IMS expects a growth of 242% and 58 million shipments for tablets in 2011. All of this shows the rapid increase of popularity for tablets– and the Android driven tablets are taking up the market share dramatically. Analyst Toni Sacconaghi has predicted that the shipment of tablets worldwide will reach 215 million units by 2015. He believes that 15% of the tablet sales are derived from consumers from the PC market; consequently, between 2010 and 2015 the growth rate of PC sales should decline by 2%.
Android application developers and manufacturers have spent a great deal of time and resources to improve the user-experience in order to increase their registered users, and most of these applications are free. As the number of users grows, more and more developers and manufacturers are seeking to charge user, and B.Shark’s BSpay API just meets with developers’ demands. Due to the positive feedback from the market for Android BSpay API, B.Shark has decided to launch BSpay API for tablets.
Much improvement has been made to BSpay API for tablets. The API will identify whether the payment is made from a mobile phone or a tablet. The same BSpay API can be used for tablets. B.Shark’s BSpay API can be downloaded from B.Shark’s official website.
