KaiOS Technologies Named Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough at MWC

From the outset, KaiOS Technologies’ mission has been to reach underserviced markets and bring the internet to unconnected communities through innovative mobile technology. In a year that has already been filled with excitement and growth, we’re proud to announce KaiOS was named the Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough at MWC’s Asia Mobile Awards 2018 in Shanghai.

To date, Kai has been spearheading mobile disruption in emerging markets around the world. In January, we announced our partnership with Reliance Retail, maker of the KaiOS-powered JioPhone in India, allowing users to experience advanced digital services, while helping them to save money and enjoy a longer battery life.

We then set our sights on expanding access to core functionality and features like social media, email, messaging, and more. At MWC in Barcelona, we proudly announced partnerships with some of the biggest names in tech, including Google, Facebook, Twitter, NXP, Nokia, Qualcomm, and many others.

And finally, in another stride toward our goal of closing the digital divide, we recently announced a partnership with Google where they’re investing $22 million in our company so that together we can connect the next billion users.

We are not taking these achievements for granted, and our vision — enriching the lives of all users in underserved markets with the best technologies — has not yet been fully achieved. At this point in our journey, however, we are proud to be numbered among the other honorees from MWC Shanghai 2018 and recognized for our pursuit to make advanced digital services available to everyone.


Stay up to date on Kai’s journey by reading our blog and following us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

    Congratulations! It would be great if the base of the KaiOS system was open sourced (like Android is). It would allow smaller OEMs to experiment with the OS on their hardware easily and accelerate the adoption of the OS in the feature phone market.

    Being open source was one of the reasons that Android became ubiquitous (instead of other OSes like Windows Phone and webOS); it was easy to deploy without many limitations.

  7. I polled a couple of physicists about this. John Terning, a theoretician who also , responds: “Even though particle theorists have small collaborations they moved to mass sharing of preprints long before the electronic agejust because the pace of development was much faster than the pace of journal publication.”I think there’s a similar situation in computer science and some engineering fields, where your career reputation depends more on conference presentations than on journal publications.

  8. To clarify, Cleveland because they like bringing in washed up star power to hide the fact that LeBron ball is all that will ever work for them. Imagine Lebron and Iverson sharing the rock!

  9. while the ad wasn’t all that new in its contents- jumping out of planes into shapes is pretty old school. but at least Honda changed it up with the 3 mintue live ad. something new and cool in a boring format – so its progress at least. more importantly, does seeing people jump out of a plane and spell honda make me want to buy one? no. but it does make me wonder if this means i will need to learn to skydive to own a honda. additional media is great – but couldn’t they at least make it relevant to what they’re selling?
