Burma Search Portal Google.com.mm Due for Launch
22 March 2013
While Google Chairman Eric Schmidt spoke in Rangoon on Friday, business news website Quartz reports that Google plans to introduce several specific services in Burma in coming months in order to claim a stake in its underdeveloped IT and telecom market. Quartz said the company will launch Google.com.mm, a search engine portal with Burmese-language support, in the next few weeks. Google will also start its own Burmese language translation and font system and integrate it with services such as Google Search and Android mobile operating system. Google Analytics will be made available in Burma and a Google Play store will be opened.
