GyPSii launches Java into China

GeoSentric Oyj’s, GyPSii business unit, developers of the award winning GyPSii mobile social networking application, have announced the launch of the Java version of its application, with both Chinese and English language support.

GyPSii created the Java application with the Chinese mobile consumer firmly in mind. Many Chinese users’ first and only access to the internet is via a mobile device, and the new GyPSii Java app will appeal to the 70% of the 650 million phone owners in China who own Java-based phones.

GyPSii is already locally available in China for the major operators China Mobile and China Unicom, for download on compatible Java phones. GyPSii is also available globally across a wide range of devices, including Samsung, Nokia, LG, Apple iPhone and Blackberry smartphones.

GyPSii delivers an all in one mobile lifestyle experience, featuring simple to use content creation tools, social networking capabilities, and location context. It allows people to instantly capture and share what they are actually doing in their daily lives, building a multi-media virtual world, from the places they have been, the things that they are doing and where they are going.

GyPSii’s Chairman, Dan Harple, stated: “The arrival of GyPSii on Java is another milestone for us, which broadens the choice across all mass-market devices that consumers can use and enjoy GyPSii on – alongside the iPhone, Windows Mobile, Symbian, Blackberry (RIM), webtop and netbook applications already in our portfolio. Our GyPSii members in China are already extremely active mobile social networkers.

“With Java platform compatibility, they are now free to create, share and connect with the rest of the GyPSii community, across even more devices and networks, at anytime, from any location,” added Harple. “We plan to expand our reach on Java platforms into other countries, extending our mass market coverage further on a global basis.”
