Borqs' Android+ Powers the Recently Launched Micromax Canvas 4 PR Newswire CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 5, 2013 CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Borqs International Holding Corp, a leading global end-to-end Android and cloud software solutions provider, recently announced their cooperation with Micromax in the development of the company's new flagship product, the Canvas 4. Borqs has integrated their Android+ features to enhance the Canvas 4's powerful multitasking functionality and media applications, resulting in a radical and next-generation user experience. The Canvas 4 is a testament to the successful strategic partnership between Borqs and Micromax in a series of collaborations and clever innovations between the two companies. If there is one word that best summarizes the Canvas 4's software experience, it's sure to be "multitasking." Gone are the days when users were stuck viewing one application at a time, with all other apps relegated to running invisibly in the background. For the Canvas 4, Borqs provides a revolutionary application pinning feature which enables users to physically attach, or "pin" an application onto their screens while simultaneously using another application. Users can pin any application to their screen and presto: instant and seamless multitasking between different applications is achieved. This "pinning" feature is not limited to video or text apps; users can pin whatever apps they would like and can even watch two videos at the same time. With the Canvas 4, Borqs brings a whole new meaning to multitasking on Android. Another innovative feature of Canvas 4, courtesy of Borqs, is "Music Hub," allowing users to easily access and manage all of their music from one central location. Music Hub also provides users access to Micromax's online collection of over 500,000 songs via "Online Music Hub." With an inbuilt memory of 16GB NAND flash expandable up to 32GB, users have all the space they need to download music to their hearts' content. It also features a generously-sized and incredibly crisp 5-inch HD IPS touchscreen display. "Following the successful launch of the Canvas 4, our partnership with Micromax has finally come into full bloom. Borqs has provided advanced Android technology and apps to help enhance the overall multitasking and entertainment functionality of the Canvas 4," said Hareesh Ramanna, VP of Engineering at Borqs. "But the Canvas 4 is just the beginning. Borqs sees great potential in our partnership with Micromax, and we are exploring further opportunities to extend the Android+ experience to cover the entire Micromax smart device portfolio." "With the launch of the Canvas 4, we are yet again raising the bar for affordable innovation," said Mr. Rahul Sharma, Co Founder, Micromax. "Powered by Borqs' leading Android solutions, we believe consumers can expect much more from Canvas 4 and other Micromax devices in the future.
