Firstouch A10 smartphone which can translate from English to Indian regional languages launched
In a hope to reach technology to the remote and rural areas, where regional languages are predominant, a group of IIT-B graduates launched the Firstouch A10 smartphone.
MoFirst Solutions Ltd founded by Rakesh Deshmukh, Akash Dongre and Sudhir Bangarambandi have launched the Firstouch A10 entry-level smartphone which would allow users to translate text written in English to Indian languages and vice versa by just swiping. The trio have been successful at developing and patenting a 48-key virtual keyboard for the Indian alphabets and a supportive predictive text engine.
In the initial stages, the Firstouch A10 will support Gujarati language and will be available in Rajkot later this month for Rs. 6000. After the experimentation, Hindi and Marathi will be added followed by support to all Indian languages by end of the year. The phone has a 4 inch display and entry-level hardware.
