Popular Twitter account @evleaks, which is known for its accurate leaks on the latest smartphones and tablets, now has accounts which are specific to various countries. One of the countries on the list is the India, and the twitter account is called @evleaksIN. You can check out the full feed here.
On 8 March, nearly three days after the account was launched, evleaksIN tweeted in Hindi, "Namaste to everyone. Now @evleaks will come in your favourite language in Hindi at @evleaksIN." The earlier tweets were also in Hindi, as were the ones following it.
Evleaks is run by Evan Nelson Blass, a former technology journalist who was a senior editor at Engadget.
The number of followers for the Twitter India feed is still a little low, just around 525, but it should grow in the coming days. One of the first tweets of the account was in Hindi and about the HTC One smartphone for AT&T and it was written in Hindi. This seems a little irrelevant for India, given that AT&T is not a mobile operator in the country.
The next two tweets dealt with Samsung's new Chromebook 2, pointing out that Samsung was continuing with the Galaxy Note 3's faux-leather back design for the Chromebook as well. It should be pointed out that @evleaksIN was tweeting out almost everything in India.
However the latest tweet has a poll in English asking users, "Poll: Would you prefer us to post in Hinglish or Hindi?" It seems users haven't taken to kindly to reading all that Hindi on Twitter. In fact one of the tweets, pointing out that the new HTC M8 device would also be sold on Google Play with a pure Android version like it's previous version, does take some deciphering.
As far as Hindi is concerned evleaksIN has a pretty impressive vocabulary. Check out some of evleaksIN's tweets.
