History[edit]

2005–2011: Founding and company beginnings[edit]

Link Motion was founded as NQ Mobile in 2005 by Dr. Henry Lin, formerly the youngest associate professor at the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, and Dr. Vincent Shi.[3] The company began its business by offering mobile security services and later started offering productivity products to families and enterprise customers. Their services were compatible with a wide range of handset models and almost all currently available operating systems for smartphones, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry OS. NQ Mobile also collaborated closely with other mobile ecosystem participants, including chipmakers, handset manufacturers, wireless carriers, third party payment channels, retailers and other distribution channels in order to broaden the reach of their services.

NQ Mobile's initial focus was the China marketplace. The company cooperated with China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, the three largest mobile companies in China. NQ Mobile also cooperated with Nokia and Sony to pre-installed NQ products on their companywide mobile phones. NQ Mobile has also worked closely with Symbian, Windows Mobile and Android, developing mobile security applications based on those operating systems. In addition, Samsung, Motorola, Dopod, Lenovo, Tencent, and Baidu have all been the company’s partners.

In August 2011, Chris Stier was appointed Managing Director for the Americas and became responsible for NQ Mobile's business development throughout the Americas, overseeing sales and marketing operations as well as establishing strategic partnerships with key industry players in the region.[4]

Dr. Lin continued to focus on the core markets such as China and Taiwan among other developing countries.

During the first half of 2012, NQ Mobile expanded its international management with the additions of Gavin Kim as Chief Product Officer,[7] Conrad Edwards as Chief Experience Officer, and Victoria Repice as Senior Director of Product Management.[8]

NQ Mobile expanded its mobile internet services in November 2012 with the acquisition of Feiliu.[9] Feiliu was founded in 2009 and was subsequently rebranded to FL Mobile.
