DivX partners with Pantech to make DivX Certified devices Today DivX announced a new licensing agreement with mobile phone manufacturer Pantech to develop DivX Certified devices. They will also be working with Qualcomm to certify the Snapdragon IC platform.
Since the inception of the DivX certification program in 2007 more than 60 different phones have been certified. Last year alone they certified 41.

In total more than 250 million DivX Certified devices, ranging from mobile phones to Blu-ray players, have been sold.

In addition they've recently introduced DivX TV, a streaming video solution, for the Android OS. They are demonstrating DivX TV at the Mobile World Congress, going on now in Barcelona, Spain.

"The explosion of video capability on mobile phones clearly illustrates that consumers are seeking out new devices that will allow them to easily move and share the video content they care about across all the screens in their lifestyle," said Kevin Hell, CEO of DivX, Inc. "We believe that mobile devices will play an incredibly important role in the future of video distribution and consumption, and we're pleased that multiple manufacturers recognize the importance of the DivX brand in providing their consumers a seamless, high-quality video experience."
