Aug 15 (Reuters) - Shares of Intertainment Media jumped 14 percent after it said its unit has started beta-testing an online chatting application for Google’s Android marketplace.
Ortsbo Inc, Intertainment’s unit that offers a real-time language translation chat platform called Ortsbo, is expected to launch the app for Android by mid-September as part of the Ortsbo 2Go mobile suite.
Ortsbo already has a version of the app for Apple’s iPhone.
Beta testing is when a software is released to a limited audience for use and evaluation in a real-world environment.
