Few days ago, Tencent internal sources indicated that Apple had agreed to integrate the messaging software QQ to the new iPad. Today, the rumor was confirmed, and Apple has informed us by posting the logo of the software QQ on the iPad of the Chinese version of its App store. (see picture)
Apple had no reason to refuse the application QQ, because this instant messenger is the most used in China far ahead of MSN messenger. Not so long ago QQ set a new record breaking the 100 million online users. This large number of users and a multitude of rich Internet applications built around the platform QQ have finally convinced Apple.
According to datas provided by analysts from Investor Village, saying that since the beginning of the opening pre-order of the iPad on March 12th this year, Apple is receiving more than 25 000 orders every hour. At this pace, it would be possible that the iPad sales reaches 2 million units during its official launch next April 3rd.
This cooperation between QQ and Apple is one of the few cases in the industry of the Internet technology, when a foreign company uses technology from China. Tencent will surely benefit from the success of the iPad as well as the image of Apple to build his own reputation outside China.
