AOL Announces New Open Mobile Software Platform

Hand AOL today announced the AOL Open Mobile Platform, which it plans to make available to developers this summer. The new open platform will help stimulate innovation by providing developers with ready access to the tools and source code they need to build and distribute applications across all major mobile device platforms and operating systems including BREW, Java, Linux, RIM, Symbian, and Windows Mobile. As a result, developers will be able to create applications for a wide variety of mobile devices.The AOL Open Mobile Platform is based on proven technology acquired by AOL that has been deployed across more than 150 different handsets on carrier networks in the U.S. The platform will consist of three components: an XML-based, next-generation markup language; an ultra-lightweight mobile device client; and an application server. A dynamic presentation layer will allow for rapid deployment of new features and easy optimization for a wide variety of mobile devices, allowing developers to build and update applications once, and then distribute them across all supported devices and platforms. In addition, it will be possible to integrate applications built using the AOL Open Mobile Platform with third-party APIs, as well as with AOL’s open APIs for AIM, AOL Mail, AOL Video, MapQuest, Userplane, Truveo, Winamp, and others. The AOL Open Mobile Platform will also give developers the ability to monetize their mobile applications by utilizing advertising resources, such as clickable banner ads, provided by AOL’s Platform-A.“The use of mobile services continues to increase at a steady rate and for any developer looking to build applications for this growing space, the AOL Open Mobile Platform couldn’t make it any easier,” said Steve Murphy, Senior Vice President of AOL. “Our new open platform will provide developers with a new breed of tools, including source code, for creating robust mobile services and will encourage product innovation.” “AOL is committed to providing developers around the world with access to our core technologies which give them the ability to build and deliver innovative new products,” said Kevin Conroy, Executive Vice President of AOL. “Mobile is an important example of how we’re opening AOL’s products to the developer community and providing access to new open tools and source code. As more developers leverage our open technologies, we look forward to seeing exciting new products that serve a global audience.”

New Android SDK Released + screenshots of new UI!

Hand“On behalf of the entire Android team, I’m happy to let you know that an updated version of the Android SDK — we’re calling it m5-rc14 — is now available. Today, we’re continuing the early look at the Android SDK that we started back in November by providing updates to the Android APIs and the developer tools based, in part, on the great feedback and suggestions developers have been giving us. We’re excited about the progress that we’ve made and look forward to making additional updates in the future as the platform evolves towards production-readiness.There are a couple of changes in m5-rc14 I’d like to highlight: New user interface – As I mentioned when we introduced the m3 version of the Android SDK, we’re continuing to refine the UI that’s available for Android. m5-rc14 replaces the previous placeholder with a new UI, but as before, work on it is still in-progress. Layout animations – Developers can now create layout animations for their applications using the capabilities introduced in the android.view.animation package. Check out the LayoutAnimation*.java files in the APIDemos sample code for examples of how this works. Geo-coding – android.location.Geocoder enables developers to forward and reverse geo-code (i.e. translate an address into a coordinate and vice-versa), and also search for businesses. New media codecs – The MediaPlayer class has added support for the OGG Vorbis, MIDI, XMF, iMelody, RTTL/RTX, and OTA audio file formats. Updated Eclipse plug-in – A new version of ADT is available and provides improvements to the Android developer experience. In particular, check out the new Android Manifest editor.You can find more information about what’s changed in a couple of documents that we’ve published. First is an overview of the changes to the Android APIs in API Changes Overview. If you want a more granular view of what’s changed, an API diff between m3-rc37 and m5-rc14 is also available. Finally, Upgrading the SDK provides links to the two previously referenced documents and the release notes, as well as instructions on how to upgrade your development environment.” More photos here:

HTC Touch Dual Review at phonearena!

Hand“The phone’s appearance catches the eye extremely easy. If you pull the phone out of the suede bag, included in the box and people around you don’t start asking you questions like “Is this Prada?” or “Is that a new model by Samsung?”, then most likely, you are surrounded by individuals, who have spent the last year in a Buddhist temple. Confusion like that could be explained, by the large display, which when inactive, offers extremely beautiful mirror-like effect. The TFT display has a 240×320 pixel resolution and supports up to 65k colors. Its high contrast, providing good visibility in daylight, as well as the easy to clean surface, leave us with a very good impression. Just over its upper right corner is the video calling camera.” Read more here:
