Sony Ericsson Nexus UX Platform WebSDK released for Android & Symbian Foundation development

Sony Ericsson Nexus UX Platform WebSDK released for Android & Symbian Foundation development

We may be giving Sony Ericsson a darn good scolding on the one hand for their XPERIA X10 hijinks, but we're a little more interested by their new WebSDK for Android and Symbian Foundation devices.  The Sony Ericsson WebSDK promises a metaphorical hand-holding for developers hoping to have their wares nestle up against the company's own apps, whether that be on the XPERIA X10 or the SE Satio.  It's called Nexus, seemingly the official title for the UX platform Sony Ericsson were talking about with regards the X10.

Intel Atom Processor Developer Program kicks off: netbook-centric SDK

Intel Atom Processor Developer Program kicks off: netbook-centric SDK

Intel have kicked off their latest attempt to get developers coding especially for netbooks, in the shape of the Atom Processor Developer Program.  Aimed at optimizing software to take advantage of the generally smaller screen size of netbooks - and likely their lower-powered hardware, too - Intel are pushing Microsoft's Silverlight as a broadly-deployable underlying platform.

Samsung Application Store Unveiled by Samsung Mobile

Samsung Application Store Unveiled by Samsung Mobile

TouchWiz wasn't the greatest. TouchWiz 2.0 was a huge leap in the right direction. But there was always going to be something holding back Samsung from taking any steps forward in the mobile marketplace, and it had nothing to do with proprietary software on their phones. They lacked what everyone else and their second-cousin has: a way to get first- and third-party developed applications onto their phones. Well, it looks like that's about to change.

Microsoft OneApp Gets Unleashed for Featurephones

Microsoft OneApp Gets Unleashed for Featurephones

We've mentioned Microsoft's OneApp before, as a cursory statement regarding trademarks, but now Microsoft has gone ahead and announced just exactly what we should expect. And it looks like they're trying to hit a home run. Instead of keeping their road map to their Windows Mobile platform, they're opening their doors (or maybe breaking them down) and offering the OneApp service for featurephones. That's right.

Samsung release TouchWiz SDK: widgets for all platforms

Samsung release TouchWiz SDK: widgets for all platforms

We've never particularly hidden our apathy toward Samsung's TouchWiz UI, nor our feeling that it's not quite as usable in its standard form as rival systems from HTC and others.  However all that could change now that Samsung have released the Mobile Widget SDK for TouchWiz, allowing developers to create their own desktop gadgets for not only the Windows Mobile version of the UI but the company's own proprietary OS.

In doing so, in one fell sweep Samsung have enabled application compatibility across their range.  That's no small matter, given the number of devices Samsung release - not to mention the countries those handsets are launched in - with TouchWiz giving developers a single platform to code for rather than having to deal with Samsung's various WinMo, S60 and proprietary OSes.

MiFi Developer Program launches: personal hotspot SDK released

MiFi Developer Program launches: personal hotspot SDK released

Back when we reviewed the MiFi 2352 in June, one of the aspects of the "intelligent personal hotspot" we were left most excited about was the prospect of an open API and the potential for web-connected applications to run on the 3G/WiFi device's secondary app processor.  Now Novatel Wireless have announced the launch of the MiFi developer program, and with it the release of the MiFi Web server Common Gateway Interface (CGI): everything web-savvy developers should need to start coding for the battery-powered router.
