SAN MATEO, Calif., Apr 24, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Keynote(R)
Systems (Nasdaq:KEYN) subsidiary, Keynote
DeviceAnywhere(R), the global leader in mobile
application lifecycle management (mobile ALM), has announced a
collaboration to give developers remote access to real devices from
Sprint's line of ruggedized handsets. The dedicated resource, powered by
Keynote DeviceAnywhere, will be available to members of the "Sprint Gets
Rugged" program, which is designed to help developers port their iDEN
apps to Sprint's rugged line of CDMA handsets.
Using the remote testing resource, mobile app testers can access real
handsets on Sprint's CDMA network via the Internet. This allows app
developers to target the ruggedized device market without having to
physically acquire the handsets, therefore decreasing the overall cost
of development and speeding up their time-to-market. Featured devices
include the Motorola MB612 (XPRT), the Sanyo 4100 (Taho), and Kyocera's
Duramax Pro 820, DuraCore, and DuraPlus.
In addition to direct access to devices and testing tools, the Sprint
Gets Rugged program provides up-to-date information on newly announced
ruggedized handsets, open APIs and application lifestyle management
APIs. It also supplies the information and the tools that developers
need to better understand the handset and platform functionality.
"The Sprint Gets Rugged program gives our developers everything they
need to port iDEN apps to CDMA phones," commented John Tudhope, Director
of Product Marketing, Sprint. "One of the most fundamental aspects of
the program is the collaboration with Keynote DeviceAnywhere, which
gives developers round-the-clock access to real ruggedized devices from
the comfort of their home or office."
"Rugged devices are a lifeline for people in professions and lifestyles
with a demanding outdoor environment, where standard devices are simply
not tough enough to cope," said Faraz Syed, President of Keynote
DeviceAnywhere. "The need for durable handsets will never go away, so it
makes sense for developers to take the market seriously and ensure that
their apps work flawlessly on these devices."
