Other Tanla Developments: A fortnight ago, Tanla had partnered with Research In Motion (RIM) in the Middle East to develop applications gift card solutions, using its proprietary license management solution for rights management, in application payments and redemption. Through the gift card, consumers will receive 20 apps bundled with the phone, although there was no information on which apps were being offered through this initiative. The company had also rolled out an updated license manager platform to include location based in-application redemption and social gaming support. Tanla had claimed that using its License Management solution, RIM has the ability to target users based on device, operator, country and pins and all downloads for the gift card are delivered through BlackBerry App World.
