Alcatel to Bring Innovation Center to San Francisco
Alcatel OneTouch today announced the expansion of its innovation accelerator program to North America. The company believes the new San Francisco-based center will encourage developers and startups to use its resources to create apps and services. Developers who take advantage of the innovation accelerator program will have access to Alcatel's partners, suppliers, and customers. Alcatel hopes to foster collaboration and sustainable relationships with the developer community, which could lead to better apps and services on its handsets down the road. Alcatel didn't say exactly how soon the innovation accelerator will open its doors.
