Motorola, Inc. announced the launch of advanced Android
development resources through MOTODEV, including a new App Accelerator
Program and MOTODEV Studio for Android Beta. MOTODEV will offer
developers early access to a new suite of Google Android developer
tools and programs, along with the opportunity to attend the next
MOTODEV Summit in San Diego, CA, on October 6, for advanced training
and information gathering. The program is intended to accelerate the
development of applications to be used on Motorola's mobile devices
using the Android operating system scheduled to ship later this year.
To give developers a head start in creating apps that realize
the full power of Android and utilize Motorola's newest handset
features, the company invites developers to join MOTODEV's App
Accelerator Program. Through this program, select developers will have
the ability to submit their applications to Motorola and leverage the
opportunity to distribute through a variety of channels, including
carrier stores, the Android Market and third-party distributors. In
addition, the program will specifically offer developers:
- Early access to tools, technical specs, documentation and other
development support resources
- Exclusive pre-release access to upcoming Motorola devices for testing
- Direct access to Motorola's developer support engineers via private
- Maximum market exposure for applications as soon as new mobile
devices ship to users
Motorola will also make publicly available the MOTODEV Studio
for Android Beta. MOTODEV Studio is a powerful, Eclipse-based
integrated development environment that works with Google's software
development kit. MOTODEV Studio and the MOTODEV program make it easy
for developers to create a new generation of rich user experiences for
Motorola's handsets featuring the Android operating system. Among the
resources available to developers are design and development tools;
handset emulators and virtual testing labs; intuitive interfaces for
deploying applications; application creation wizards and frequently
used code templates; and access to marketing and distribution channels.
Developers are encouraged to save the date for Motorola's
MOTODEV Summit 2009 on October 6, in San Diego, CA, a one-day event
that will bring together today's most creative and innovative
application developers from around the world to receive advanced
training, understand market opportunities and get exposure to the next
generation of Motorola device experiences. Hosted by Motorola's MOTODEV
developer network, the company's global program for developers and
independent software vendors (ISVs), the Summit is designed to provide
the developer community everything they need for Android development to
help them get a head start in developing applications for the next
generation of Motorola handsets.
