Problem or Need: 

biNu’s mission is to deliver mobile web services that are fast and easy to use. For most people, using their mobile browser is not a pleasant experience. The HTML browser architecture of the web works well on PCs but does not work well over mobile wireless networks and small handheld mobile devices.

biNu is designed from the ground-up to work within these limitations and deliver a superior and more efficient mobile data experience by providing access to internet services such as search, wikipedia, education, religion, messaging (chat,SMS).

 77% of the world’s population, or 5.3 billion people, are mobile subscribers. However:  

  • feature phones outnumber smart phones 4 to 1
  • 3.9 billion mobile subscriptions are in the developing world
  • many mobile-web users are mobile-only
  • soon more people will access the web from their phones than PCs
