Our friends in India can now use Android in their own languages. HTC, one of the leading Android players, claims to have become the first global smartphone brand to roll out full language support for Hindi, Tamil and Marathi script on its range of innovative smartphones.
Reading and typing capability for Hindi, Tamil and Marathi will be made available on HTC Desire C and Desire V sold in India through an automatic software update that can be downloaded by users starting from today. Bengali language viewing capability will be available from August 2012.
The devices with Indian language support includes HTC One X, HTC One S, HTC One V, Desire C and Desire V. In addition, users will also be able to view a fourth language, Bengali, on select applications available on Google Play. With this rollout, HTC has kept its promise of integrating full native language support for its smartphones in India, beginning with the HTC Explorer in Q4 2011.
Users will be able to read and type in Hindi, Tamil and Marathi through all messaging functions on HTC smartphones launched this year, while browsing the Internet and all applications available through Google Play.
