General News BOLT launches Mobile Browser supporting Indian languages
Advertisement
#1
Bitstream Inc. announced that the launch of its BOLT Mobile browser supporting nine Indian languages.

The new browser is built upon The BOLT cloud computing browsing platform and includes the BOLT mobile browser with Indic language user interfaces.

BOLT is available in JavaME (also known as J2ME) and BREW, and can be used on mobile phones of all types, including those phones without native Indic language support.

In addition to English, the BOLT cloud computing browsing platform now supports Hindi, Bengali, Gurumukhi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam and Oriya.

“Interacting with Indic languages presents unique challenges on mobile devices,” said Lokesh Joshi, director of research and development at Bitstream India. “Indic characters are not independent from one another the way characters are in Latin alphabets. Each letter’s size and shape is determined by the characters that surround it, making it a very complex language to work with in a mobile context. Bitstream’s heritage is in font technologies, and we have perfected the ability to render Indic fonts on consumer electronics. With BOLT’s Indic solution for device manufacturers and mobile network operators, Bitstream has also perfected Indic rendering in mobile browsing.”

Bitstream will be demonstrating the BOLT cloud computing browsing platform, including its new Indic language support and a preview of the forthcoming Android version, at the upcoming India Telecom exhibition and conference, being held 9 -11 December in New Delhi.
