Indonesian boy building maths and English apps for mobile firm

Nokia has been blogging about Fahma Waluya Rosmansyah, 12 year-old Indonesian boy who creates games and apps that help other kids learn English and maths.

His output is quite prodigious - the lad was encoding Flash in the fifth grade, before graduating that same year to create an app called BAHAMA for the Nokia E71, which taught the alphabet, counting and colours.

In the sixth grade Rosmansyah built five more apps with one, ENRICH (Indonesian to English translator), currently available as a free download from the Ovi Store.

His next app, MANTAP (for maths), will be made available on Nokia's app store 'in the coming weeks'.
