France-based Voxmobili , which was acquired by Bangalore-based VAS (value added services) provider OnMobile in September 2007, has been included among the winners of Google Android Challenge for its offering Phonebook 2.0 , a secure and interactive phonebook application that combines elements of social media and instant messaging.

Google Android Developer Challenge recognises and rewards 20 global ideas that will revolutionise mobile technology and usage for consumers on the Android platform. Android is an open and comprehensive platform launched by Open Handset Alliance, a consortium of technology and mobile industry leaders committed to promoting innovation on mobile phones.

“Phonebook 2.0 is an extension of the product line that includes other powerful products like Phone Backup and the Network Address Book,” Mouli Raman, CTO and co-founder, OnMobile Global, has said. “While Phone Backup allowed users to secure their mobile data, PhoneBook 2.0 enables consumers to get a single unified and seamless view of their interactions across all points of contact.”

With Phonebook 2.0 , contacts are not lost in case of the phone being broken or stolen because they are automatically saved on a remote server. Phonebook 2.0 also creates a social experience helping users to share their mood, location and pictures with their friends. According to Voxmobili, Phonebook 2.0 is not limited to Google’s Android Platform and will be made available on the J2ME, Symbian, Windows Mobile and the iPhone platforms shortly.
