DeviceAnywhere Collaborates with the Symbian Foundation to Deliver New Symbian Virtual Developer Lab

Together with the Symbian Foundation, established by some of the biggest names in the mobile industry, DeviceAnywhere today announces the launch of the Symbian Virtual Developer Lab (VDL). Leveraging DeviceAnywhere’s award winning technology, the newly created VDL will provide the open source community with the tools to bring innovative and compelling mobile experiences to market faster than ever before.

Available today, Symbian Foundation members will have remote access to a range of Symbian supported handsets, including the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, the first touchscreen Symbian device, and the Nokia N97, with additional devices being added as the project develops.

Utilizing DeviceAnywhere’s unique and patented Direct-To-Device™ technology, developers will be able to remotely perform real-world testing scenarios with physical devices from anywhere in the world. The use of this award-winning technology allows developers to remotely press buttons, listen to ringtones and sounds, play videos, access the internet and view LCD displays with pixel-by-pixel representations for accurate image and text matching that display exactly what the consumer would view.

Building upon the Symbian Foundation’s commitment to building a truly open source community, developers will have access to a range of built-in collaborative tools. For example, DeviceAnywhere automatically captures screen shots and keystrokes, allowing for easy review of development and testing activities. These reports can then be saved and sent to colleagues to allow for analysis and error proofing. Additionally, videos can also be recorded and used in a similar manner, or marketed to potential distributors and application stores.

“The Symbian Foundation is pleased to announce the delivery of the Symbian VDL as part of the wide range of resources available for developer support,” said Larry Berkin, Head of Global Alliances and the US office for the Symbian Foundation. “The Symbian VDL will greatly benefit our community by lowering the cost of the development and testing of mobile applications. We welcome all solutions that lower the barrier to entry for developers and allow them to be more creative, and DeviceAnywhere is a notable example of an innovative company providing such solutions. We look forward to more Symbian devices being available for testing via the VDL, so that developers can easily target the biggest mobile application opportunity available today.”

Faraz Syed, CEO of DeviceAnywhere: “To date, expensive licenses and device requirements surrounding development have limited access for many smaller developers or content providers. DeviceAnywhere was created to help developers of all sizes overcome the barriers to entry into the mobile application space and help solve the problems of fragmentation in mobility. The Symbian Foundation represents an opportunity for a truly open mobile ecosystem, something that I and many industry analysts strongly believe represents a key component in the future success of the mobile industry. This relationship with the Symbian Foundation is great progress towards an open mobile ecosystem.”

In recognition of this development, DeviceAnywhere will be giving every member of the Symbian Foundation five free hours of access to the Symbian VDL in addition to complimentary DeviceAnywhere accounts.
