itel Mobile, part of Chinese mobile manufacturer Transsion Holdings, announced its partnership with the home-grown operating system Indus OS. Through the partnership, itel Mobile is looking at introducing software differentiation in the Indian smartphone market, something which it believes holds the key to future success.
