BOLT Browser With Indic Support Made Available For Download

Bitstream has announced that the Indic language version of its BOLT mobile browser is now available as a free download at www.boltbrowser.com. The browser will support nine Indic languages including Hindi, Bengali, Gurumukhi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam and Oriya. The company claims that the browser will display indic fonts even if the handset does not natively support Indic language characters, through the use of its Font technology. It claims that the technology enables the browser to bring complex Indic characters to feature phones with low over the air data usage.

Previously BOLT with Indic language support was only available through carriers and handset OEMs who preloaded the BOLT browser on supported devices. The company had first introduced indic language support in December 2010, at the India Telecom conference. Bitstream will be demonstrating the Indic version of BOLT and previewing its forthcoming Android version at CommunicAsia, Singapore.

The BOLT browser offers users streaming audio and video supporting Flash and HTML5 video, on low end devices through the use of web compression technology. It also includes features in line with desktop browsers, and social network integration, with Twitter and Facebook widgets.

P.s: Lookout for a full review of the BOLT browser on AppNama later this week.
