When asked about samsung partnership rumors, Mr. Franks responded:
"I can only verify what is publicly available on our website and webapp which is that Samsung sits on our advisory board via Goetz Weber who also heads up partnerships at Samsung. I cannot comment on partnership discussions as they are quite material. Stay tuned!"
I am also trying to get Mr. Franks to slip out something about Mimvi being incorporated on Microsoft's new Xbox platform (codenamed Durango) which will be released sometime near the holiday season of 2013. I will post his response as soon as I get it.
I am more confident in Mimvi than I have ever been. This could possibly be the biggest play of 2013 if everything goes right.!!!!!
In my emails with Kasian Franks, CVO of Mimvi, I haven received similar answers to questions whose answers were not available on the website or PR's. on material questions he either answered he could not confirm or deny and then on some he out right denied - leaving room for interpretation on the unable to confirm or deny questions. The material questions were answered as I expected since the information has not been released yet.
Anyone claiming he has provided direct information to material questions I believe is providing their personal interpretation of his "I cannot confirm not deny - stay tuned" answer. Mimvi does have impressive members on its board of advisors as well as Kasian impressive business acquaintances.
Though he could not provide definitive answers I believe his open ended answers and the moves Mimvi has been making will be providing an active summer in 2013.
Cartier, did you get a chance to ask Mr. Feanks about Mimvi being incorporated on Microsoft's current gaming platform "Xbox 360" or Microsoft's anticipated entertainment and gaming platform "codenamed Durango"?....I just sent him an e-mail but it took about 5 days for him to answer my previous email.
