CanvasM Technologies Limited, the joint venture of Motorola Inc. and Tech Mahindra, is offering two mobile applications ‘Weather Channel’ and ‘In Mobile Search’ on Google’s Android platform for HTC handsets.
Airtel will be launching the Android based HTC Magic handsets in India and is expected to hit the market later this month.
Weather Channel application provides weather updates and forecasts to users from its current location for the same day as well as for the next three days. It’s a location-based application that works on global positioning system (GPS).
In-Mobile Search, the utility application, helps users in searching information stored on the handset such as contacts, images, audio/video files and other details from a single interface.
It searches information by query string and also allows to view images and play audio/video files without using any external applications.
Apart from these applications, CanvasM has bundled and integrated several third-party mobile applications such as City Search, Buddy Finder, Location Minder and Em-Flash for Airtel’s HTC Magic handsets.
