HTC Explorer users will be able to view and compose content in Hindi and Tamil on any compatible Android application and they will have exclusive access to high quality fonts and some of the best designed virtual keyboards for Hindi and Tamil.

 "Language is the basic medium in which people communicate and people communicate most effectively and smoothly in a language which they grew up and are familiar with. That's why HTC has made Indian language support a key priority as part of our commitment to India," said Lennard Hoornik, president of South Asia, HTC Corporation.

As the first Android smartphone to offer full Hindi and Tamil language support, HTC Explorer users will be able to view Hindi and Tamil websites, making it easy to view online content. In addition, HTC Explorer users will be able to send and receive text messages and emails in Hindi and Tamil, making it simple, intuitive and easy for Indian consumers to communicate and interact with each other.

 HTC will be working to expand support for other Indian languages on HTC Explorer in 2012 so that Indian users can connect to all of their friends and family across the country. This native language input and display support will also be integrated into future HTC smartphones launched in India, potentially enabling one billion people to carry on billions of conversations in their own languages.

"India is one of the fastest growing global smartphone markets with a rich culture and language diversity, which makes it imperative for clear and effortless communications," said Lennard Hoornik, president of South Asia, HTC Corporation.

With a curved and compact design, a 3.2" HVGA touchscreen and 3MP camera, HTC Explorer offers a full smartphone performance in an attractive and affordable design, and now, intuitive communications across Indian languages. Indian consumers also enjoy access to exclusive pre-loaded content and applications including Saavn, Bollywood Hungama, NDTV Cricket, NDTV news, eBuddy XMS, HTC Flashlight, Asphalt Adrenalin, Uno and Cricket Pro.
