Ninetology Brand & Product Launch


Dragged myself out of bed the day after returning from Where’s The Party? in Penang (Monday, 12 November 2012) and headed over to the Grand Dorsett in Subang Jaya for the Ninetology brand and product launch showcasing its unique ‘Smart Communication’ system exclusive to the company, which integrates existing and new Ninetology smartphone and tablets.

Hardware + services? Ok this was not going to be another boring old smartphone/ tablet launch…



So what is Ninetology?

Founded in August 2012, Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd is an ASEAN mobile device technology company; strongly driven by people’s pride and importance of being on par with global technology progression and renowned international standards. Ninetology had proven its capabilities when the brand had emerged tremendously and had earned a significant market share in Malaysia’s mobile device industry. Ninetology’s objective is to transform the way of traditional communication into the revolutionary era of smart phones. This prominent transition will assure enhancement of people quality with enhanced intelligence. Ninetology was launched in Indonesia in September 2012 and continues its progression to other ASEAN countries.


ninetology’s concept of smart communication


“Our smartphones and tablets are only one portion of the core of our business ecosystem. Completing the system is Ninetology’s comprehensive communication package consisting of Connectivity, Content, Software, Hardware and Smart Ecology elements,” said Mr. Sean Ng, Chief Executive Officer of Ninetology.

“We are proud to be the first organisation in South East Asia to incorporate these five crucial elements in our integrated business model, and this is Ninetology’s biggest strength,” Ng enthused.

Ninetology believes in an integrated approach to smart communications and the framework covers connectivity with ASEAN Telco providers and mobile partners while all content sources and device applications can be customised for better user interface (UI) and user experience (UE).

Content and data storage are delivered and uploaded in the cloud for simplified management. Meanwhile, the integrated Operating Systems (OS) offer easy-to-use communication, organisation and customisation processes.

Together with our intelligent, experienced professionals from various divisions, we have been working on this business concept for 10 years to provide outstanding performance and impactful solutions”.

The company will also be progressing into the Vietnam, Cambodia and Singapore markets by the end of 2012.

“We have our eyes on the region, and aim to be the one-stop platform for innovation and the nation’s largest mobile technology provider,” said Ng.
