Motorola today announced the launch of advanced Android development resources through MOTODEV, including a new App Accelerator Program and MOTODEV Studio for Android Beta. MOTODEV Studio is an Eclipse-based integrated development environment that works with Google’s software development kit.
Among the resources being made 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.
As part of the App Accelerator program, MOTODEV will offer developers early access to a new suite of Google Android developer tools and programs. 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.
Through the App Accelerator program, select developers will have the ability to submit their applications to Motorola and have 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 and debugging.
- Direct access to Motorola’s developer support engineers via private discussion boards.
- Maximum market exposure for applications as soon as new mobile devices ship to users.
