HTC One, Desire smartphones to support Hindi and other Indian languages
HTC has announced it will be adding support for Indian languages – Hindi, Tamil and Marathi – to its One and Desire series smartphones. The company is rolling out a software upgrade that will enable users to read and write in the Indian languages while using the phone's messaging application, browsing the Internet or even exploring the applications on Google Play store.
HTC in a release says users will be able to read Bengali on select apps on Play store from next month. The company, however, does not clarify these select apps refer to its own distributed apps or ones distributed by the third party developers.
The company says the language support will be released over the air. Initially, the update will be available for Desire C and Desire V smartphone users. HTC will be releasing update for One X, One S and One V from August 2012.
“HTC is committed to helping Indian consumers communicate easily through a more intuitive mobile experience, which can only be offered with full Indian language capability on their smartphones,” says Faisal Siddiqui, Country Manager, HTC India. “HTC continues to be the smartphone brand of choice for the India market due to our focus on what the consumer needs, and delivering that in an encompassing, holistic manner.”
It is not the first time when HTC has added support for local languages in its smartphone. Last year, the company had added Hindi and Tamil language support for its low-cost Explorer smartphone.
It's notable that Google's latest OS, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, comes with support for 18 other languages including Hindi and Arabic.
