Geodesic Limited, a provider of mobile and desktop solutions for instant messaging, VoIP and Internet radio, has closed a licensing deal with HiAchieve Digital Technology, a Taiwan-based provider of next generation learning tools and services, to embed Geodesic's Mundu Messenger into HiAchieve's Android-powered eWonderPad tablet aimed at the education market.
HiAchieve's digital content platform includes after-class reading materials, simulated test papers and textbooks that come bundled with its 10-inch Android tablet, saving children from lugging printed materials to and from school. The addition of Mundu IM to eWonderPad enables students to also interact with their network of friends, family and colleagues – including chatting, sharing photos, page views, video clips or audio files, and posting links to social networking sites – all from the same device.
Said Arvind Venkateswaran, Geodesic's SVP of worldwide business development, "By embedding Geodesic’s Mundu IM, eWonderPad users will be able to stay connected while studying with all of their IM contacts, regardless of IM service."
Geodesic's mobile IM solution combines all of the most popular IM services, including Yahoo!, AOL, MSN, ICQ and Google Talk. Mundu Messenger supports all leading web browsers, including IE, Mozilla Firefox and Safari and, in addition to interoperating with the leading consumer IM services, it integrates with Jabber for enterprise IM.
