Mobile Browser BOLT To Launch Support For 9 Indian Languages

BOLT, the mobile browser from NASDAQ listed company Bistream, will added support for nine Indian language scripts: Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam, Oriya. What’s interesting is that BOLT has laid claim to being the first mobile browser to offer “complete Indic language support”. Well, not exactly complete, since there are 22 official languages in India, apart from several others. The browser will be launched next week at the India Telecom conference. (Note: we had incorrectly reported that the browser has already been launched. Our apologies)

Opera Mini, which has significant distribution deals in India, also claims to support five languages: Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, Marathi and Hindi. There appear to be rendering issues there too: Tamil didn’t work for OneIndia and Webdunia, though Hindi worked just fine.

I don’t have a Series 40 handset, so couldn’t try out the Ovi Browser, which Nokia introduced earlier in July. Nokia had had acquired Novarra earlier this year.
