The country’s indigenous smartphone operating system Indus OS on Thursday announced a multi-year partnership with US-based mobile platform company Digital Turbine, Inc.
The idea is to digitally connect the next one billion people in the emerging markets with a smartphone ecosystem of their choice.
Currently live, Indus OS launched Digital Turbine’s Ignite platform to power its mobile app campaigns last month.
“By partnering with Digital Turbine, we are able to provide tailored app recommendations that fit the local market and improve end customers’ overall experience,” said Rakesh Deshmukh, co-founder and CEO of Indus OS, in a statement.
Indus OS is currently available on eight million smartphones across 80 smartphone models, and aims to add 100 million users by 2020.
