but you're sure to see its apps on other mobile devices across the

upcoming WiMax portal.Now, Google has laid the groundwork for another
mobile push, inking a deal with Bharti Airtel, India's largest

customers. But in the future, the two plan to offer similar apps on
mobile phones as well, Business Standard reports.
