Cambodia IT: AngkorOne launches phone app

ANGKOR One has launched a mobile-phone application that will allow mobile users with internet connections to access its website on their phones.

The IT company’s new application is free, but will be supported by advertisement revenue, spokeswoman Athana Nou said yesterday.

Founded less than two years ago, the firm is presently operating at a loss, she said, though she declined to comment on the size of its deficit.

The mobile-phone application was designed “from the ground up”, said Angkor One CEO Steven Path in a press release. “AngkorOne Mobile offers valuable content for Khmers … who have limited or no access to an internet computer.”

Discussions are under way with Smart Mobile to send the application to its subscribers, Athana Nou said.

The application does not require a 3rd Generation (3G) phone and is available to any mobile phone user in Cambodia regardless of service provider.

The application, which can be downloaded from the company website, is available in English or Khmer. It gives users access to the firm’s mobile-specific web page, which provides a news page and a social networking site.
