BOLT Indic Mobile Browser Now Available As A Free Download

Bitstream Inc. ( NASDAQ: BITS) today announced that the Indic language version of its acclaimed BOLT mobile browser is now available as a free download for end users. With this announcement, the estimated 1.3 billion people living in India and surrounding regions will be able to enjoy the BOLT browser in nine Indic languages, even if their handset does not natively support Indic language characters.

Previously BOLT with Indic language support was only available through carriers and OEMs who preloaded the BOLT browser on supported handsets. Now end users worldwide can download the BOLT browser with Indic language support for free at www.boltbrowser.com.

Already the most fully-featured mobile browser built for phones of all types, BOLT offers users the widest variety of streaming audio and video available in a mobile browser, supporting both Flash and HTML5 video, and also includes many advanced features and social network integration, such as Twitter and Facebook widgets, often surpassing features available on desktop browsers.

BOLT perfectly renders Indic text on Web pages with support for the following Indic languages:

  • Hindi
  • Bengali
  • Gurumukhi
  • Telugu
  • Tamil
  • Kannada
  • Gujarati
  • Malayalam
  • Oriya

“Up until today, several million people from India and its surrounding regions have been using our free English language version,” said Ritu Varma, Bitstream director of product management. “Being able to provide BOLT in the native languages of these millions of users is a huge breakthrough, especially given that many of our users’ phones don’t natively support Indic characters. BOLT, powered by Font Technology that Bitstream is globally famous for, is able to bring the complex Indic characters to these handsets with remarkably low over the air data usage so that our users can enjoy Indic Websites and content from their phones just as they would appear on a desktop computer. This is a big advance for mobile browsing in India and its surrounding regions and BOLT is the only mobile browser that can deliver it.”
