Sprint and Openwave Target Browsers for App Development
Sprint today announced that it has adopted Openwave's Integra technology so that developers may write applications to run within the browsers of mobile phones. The Sprint Browser-VAS (value-added services) ecosystem will provide developers with the tools and support they need to create browser-based apps and services. Sprint believes that by targeting the browser for app development, it will help developers create apps that will run across different platforms and form factors. Developers can get the tools they need from Sprint's developer site. Sprint said it expects to launch a storefront for this new set of browser-based apps within the first half of 2011.
