Indus OS nominated for ‘Global Mobile Awards 2017’ to be held at MWC 2017 event

Indus OS has become the world’s first regional operating system to be named for this award.

GSM Association (GSMA) on Wednesday nominated multi-lingual domestic operating system brand Indus OS for the "Global Mobile Awards 2017" to be held at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, later this month. With a user base of over six million, Indus OS is world's first regional operating system conceptualized for the users from the emerging markets who have been excluded from the digital wave due to the very simple, yet poignant factor -- language barrier.

According to GSMA, a global association of mobile device makers and mobile network operators, four billion people are still 'offline' and unable to participate in the digital age due to reasons ranging from lack of access to lack of awareness.
