biNu is Your Smartphone in the Cloud. biNu can best be described as a cloud-based software platform that delivers popular internet services (like Facebook, Twitter, Google search, Wikipedia, news, sports scores, weather forecasts and much more) in any language to mass-market and smart mobile phones, with lightning-fast response times and very low bandwidth usage.
biNu’s smart compression, cacheing and pre-loading of pages all ensure a high speed and efficient mobile experience. For most mobile users biNu is 5-10 times faster than the standard mobile web browser experience and typically uses 5-10 times less data for the same results.
Content in any language can be displayed in biNu apps, regardless of the languages installed on the phone. The biNu platform is therefore accessible by virtually all of the billions of mobile users in all the countries of the world.
biNu is particularly popular in the emerging markets of India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, several African nations, the Middle East and Latin America. The biNu team are passionate about the potential of mobile products to help improve the prospects of many millions of lives around the world.
