New cell phone software for live crick updates

MUMBAI: With an all important India Pakistan series which is currently underway, cricket mania seems to be rubbing off on almost everybody. The latest to cash in on the series is Chakra Interactive (gaming company based in Mumbai) which launched a revolutionary software system for mobile phones called CricketPal especially for the India-Pakistan ODI series.

CricketPal will enable mobile subscribers to get live and complete scoreboards on their mobile phones at the press of a button. Also a boon for subscribers is that they need not pay for the numerous and tedious SMS to get latest score updates.

What's the score?

Unlike the dull SMS text score updates, the CricketPal software is rich media based – having vibrant colors and sounds. Once CricketPal is downloaded into your mobile phone, all one needs to do is press one button to fetch latest score updates with live commentary. The system can also be set to auto-fetch latest score every five or 10 minutes.

"CricketBar is a well formatted, detailed, dynamic complete scoreboard in the palm of your hand," says Chakra Interactive CEO Vishal Lamba who is the man behind the revolutionary idea. "Cricket lovers can now enjoy ODI’s where-ever they are. The system even makes sounds when a four or six is hit, or when a wicket falls! It’s just a much more fun way of enjoying the game than SMS is."

Technology at its best

CricketPal can be downloaded from At the website, all one needs to do is to enter their mobile phone number and phone model for the download to take place. The online system will then send CricketPal to their mobile phone over-the-air. The cost of CricketPal is $9.95.

The phones that support CricketPal are Nokia 40 Series: 3100, 3200, 3300, 5100, 6100, 6610, 6800, 7210, 7250. In the Nokia 60 series: 3650, 3660, 6600, 7650, N-Gage. The versions for other devices like Motorola, Siemens, Sony-Ericsson, Sharp, Panasonic and LG phones will be available shortly.
