Developers all around the world, take notes. Bitstream namely unveiled BOLT at the India Telecom exhibition as the first of its kind Web browser for mobile devices to include complete support for Indic languages. Definitely, this is an excellent move and great news for the mobile Indian population! Not only does BOLT support Hindi; India's official language, but it also supports Bengali, Gurumukhi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam and Oriya. In other words, that is nine spoken languages in a single upgrade.
Bitstream has certainly outdone itself this time, but the support for additional languages is very, very welcome. Here is to hoping that other developers also begin globalizing their products - did you know that more than half of RIM's revenue comes from outside North America? Well, now you know ;-)
