New Delhi: Telecom service provider Aircel on Tuesday, tied up with software exporter Infosys Technologies, to launch its first mobile application store in the country that offers greater choice of songs and games to consumers.
Using the service provided by the mobile application store, users would be able to browse and download applications such as songs, videos, games and other informations related to health, finance, entertainment either for free or at a cost.
The concept of application store was pioneered by Apple for its iPhone users.
Infosys, the country’s second-largest software exporter by revenue, will provide a platform - FLYPP - for Aircel’s mobile application store, Aircel COO Gurdeep Singh told reporters here.
The IT firm is also in talks with other global and domestic service providers for providing the mobile application platform, Infosys Chief Operating Officer S.D. Shibulal said.
The company, however, did not give the financial details of the deal.
