SurfKitchen announced that it had extended its mobile operator data services solution, SurfKit Mobile, to all major mobile phone platforms by committing to support Microsoft's Smartphone. The company's portfolio already includes Java and Symbian (including the Symbian-based UIQ Platform).
SurfKitchen CEO Philip Letts, said: "As the significant benefits of SurfKit Mobile become recognised by mobile operators globally we have found it essential to have the ability to cater for multiple operating systems. Now we can help all operators deliver greater customer satisfaction and generate greater revenues from data services - irrespective of which phones they offer services on - as our platform is now platform agnostic."
SurfKit Mobile allows operators to remotely customise and control the user interface on a range of mobile devices. The solution dramatically reduces the complexity of data services allowing users to have easier access to services such as games, ringtones and business applications.
SurfKitchen announced O2 UK as a customer earlier this month. SurfKit Mobile plays a crucial role in powering the next phase of O2 Active made available to O2 UK's mobile subscribers on 16 February. O2 Active is an innovative, full-colour mobile application that offers customers simple access to online data and multimedia services directly from a mobile device.
