Marlborough, Mass. -- Just past 2 years since BOLT™ was first introduced, Bitstream Inc. announced today its renowned mobile browser now has been installed more than 20 million times in over 200 countries around the world. Launched at Mobile World Congress in February 2009, the BOLT mobile browser is the most advanced and fully featured mobile browser available for phones of all types.

BOLT has enjoyed consistent growth as people around the world flock to the acclaimed browser’s video streaming, tight integration with social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and a host of other features that deliver PC-style browsing to mobile phones of all types. BOLT’s users have streamed more than 130 million minutes of video, and viewed nearly 2.3 billion Web pages.

“BOLT is a mobile app that has gained popularity in every corner of the globe,” said Anna Magliocco-Chagnon, CEO of Bitstream. “Now that we’ve passed our 20 million milestone, we are literally counting BOLT users in every geographical region in the millions. It’s fascinating to see how people in markedly different cultures embrace the same types of features and Web destinations no matter where they are accessing the Internet from. Social networking and video streaming are as popular in Africa and Asia as they are in Europe and North America. Facebook continuously tops our list of most popular websites users visit around the world utilizing BOLT’s ability to stream Facebook videos.”

In addition to end user downloads, Bitstream is also seeing its OEM and wireless operator partners begin preloading BOLT onto mobile handsets around the world.

BOLT is a free download for people using mobile phones that run Java ME (also known as J2ME) applications – approximately 75 percent of the world’s estimated 4 billion mobile phones – as well as BlackBerry smartphones. Bitstream also offers a light version of the BOLT mobile browser, BOLT Lite. BOLT Lite contains all the essential features of the BOLT mobile browser, retaining BOLT’s feature-rich functionality, best-of-breed download speeds and desktop PC-style page layout in a smaller package optimized for entry-level devices.

BOLT 2.5 and BOLT Lite are available for free at Consumers who have downloaded previous versions of BOLT will be prompted through the application to upgrade the browser.
