We have had a few shareholders ask some questions about our latest deal with Travel Video Store and App content deals in general.

All equity stakes with content partners will be in the form of restricted shares (12 months) unless otherwise stated, and we are pleased to report that we have closed another investment deal with a Glenn Harrold, which also extends our rights agreement for the rest of 2011.

With collective sales of more than 1,000,000 units, Glenn Harrold is the top selling self-help author on audio in the UK. Harrold’s titles consistently rank in iTunes’ top 100 best-selling Audiobooks Chart in both the US and UK; and on Audible.com. All Glenn Harrold’s titles are best-sellers, generating annual sales over $500,000. Last year, Glenn Harrold was one of the 20 highest-selling audio authors in the UK, along with JK Rowling and Agatha Christie. Sales of Harrold’s best-selling release, Complete Relaxation, exceeded 250,000 units and earned a gold disc from Nielsen BookScan in 2006. Glenn has been one of our top-selling partners for months now with many apps appearing in top charts around the world.

We expect more deals to follow, and due to possible competition issues we have decided to keep some details of the deals confidential. Management is pleased to have two of our major content partners invested for the long-term in Metatron, and look forward to forming new alliances this year.

In other news from Apple Insider:

Initial sales of the iPad 2 are expected to surpass the first-generation device, but numerous new points of distribution for Friday’s launch are predicted to dilute lines of people.

Analyst Gene Munster with Piper Jaffray noted Tuesday that the original iPad launched at 221 U.S. Apple retail stores and most of Best Buy’s about 1,100 American stores last year. The iPad 2 will debut with much greater availability, at more than 10,000 stores of retail partners in addition to 236 current Apple retail stores.

Google’s Android surpassed Research in Motion’s BlackBerry to become the largest mobile platform at the start of 2011, while Apple’s iOS and iPhone took third before the Verizon iPhone 4 was released.

New market data released by comScore on Monday shows that Google Android was the largest mobile platform in the U.S. for the three-month period that concluded with January 2011. Android’s growth of 7.7 percent over the previous quarter pushed the Google mobile operating system to 31.2 percent share, past RIM’s 30.4 percent share.

In terms of hardware, the survey of 30,000 mobile subscribers found that Samsung was the top overall handset maker with a 24.9 percent share, representing 0.7 percent growth from the October 2010 quarter. Apple came in fifth among device makers, with its 7 percent share up 0.6 percent from the previous three-month frame.

It is becuase of this market share growth we are expanding our app releases into Android and other platforms.
