Dhingana Inc. Key Developments

Dhingana Partners with Idea Cellular

Dhingana announced partnership with Idea Cellular, to debut -- a co-branded music subscription service, which allows users to download unlimited music with no data charges. The service is available to over 127 million Postpaid and Prepaid users of Idea using Android Smartphones and WAP Feature Phones. Idea's subscribers will be able to download unlimited songs, albums and playlists, in HD quality and ad-free -- like Dhingana Gold on iOS -- but unlike iOS will not be charged for data. The downloads are encrypted on the device and subscribers can listen to them only using Dhingana's Android App. Idea's WAP subscribers will be able to stream music ad-free without being charged for data. Dhingana has developed a carrier-class Billing Platform for subscription services. It is capable of deeply integrating with Mobile Operator's SDP/Billing Systems and has cutting edge features like metering data consumptions across multiple PLMNs, real-time co-branding with Mobile Operators, automatic fall-back pricing based on subscriber's prepaid account and 1-click subscription with auto-renewals. The service is a compelling way to generate revenues from the Feature phones and as well the phenomenally growing Android phones.
