Sygic, the author of the Sygic Mobile Maps turn-by-turn voice guided navigation software, is releasing the navigation application for yet another platform – Google's Android operating system.
Sygic Mobile Maps is a proven navigation application on a range of more than 200 devices including 150 mobile phones and smartphones, among others also on the iPhone. This way the Android enthusiasts can benefit from all the feedback of Windows Mobile, Symbian and iPhone OS phone users so far.
„The strength of Sygic and our development lies in the fact, that we are using a common product base for all operating systems. Thanks to this multiplatform approach we need much shorter time to get the application working on any device as well as maintaining them in the future. After Windows Mobile, Symbian, Linux and iPhone we are now launching the Android version. It is expected to hit the market in Q3 2009 in cooperation with major global hardware players – we will release more information very soon. The first supported regions are going to be Europe, North America, Russia, Australia, South East Asia, and further regions will be added later.“ says Michal Stencl, Sygic's CEO.
Anna Hurbanic, Sygic's PR Manager, adds: „We are looking forward to the exciting new wave of Android devices – and we are not speaking about the mobile phones only – to approve and support, as they will be introduced later this year.“
Apart from the inherent distribution through Android's native Android Market, Sygic is currently selecting further sales channels and distributors in order to offer the application to the users.
