(2009/12/01)

Project of joint research of Tibetan-language information for mobile phone was launched recently in Lhasa. In the near future, Tibetans will be able to use Tibetan language to operate their mobile phones, receive and send messages.

The project is designed to meet the needs of both Windows mobile and Symbian operating systems. Users will be able to download software in Tibetan language which support short message editing and sending.
