Simplifying Mobile Application Development
So you’ve got a product that could benefit from a mobile version or perhaps you’ve already deployed an application on the iPhone or Blackberry platforms and would like to deploy your application on non-smart phones. Well look no further! With our recent announcement of an “Apps For All” program at CES, AT&T is looking to enable the mid-range device segment with more appealing and accessible applications. We are facilitating this through three separate platforms that include Brew, Plusmo Widgets and Java ME. Each of these three platforms enables developers to quickly and simply deploy their applications to a wide swath of devices within the mid-range market with minimal porting effort.
Whether development is targeted towards the Brew, widget or Java ME market, “device fragmentation” issues can be minimized with our new platforms, thus reducing porting costs. Even better yet, simply reducing the need to recode your application across multiple phones will speed up the time to market and potentially coding complexity as well.
At the end of the day, by enabling developers to develop more applications for more phones, more quickly, AT&T Mobility is looking to engage mobile phone users in new and exciting ways.
