Openwave and GetJar Collaborate on Developer Tools
Openwave announced a new developer product today called Amplicity. Amplicity grants developers access to network operator data (anonymous subscriber info) and lets them take advantage of it to create applications that work in the browser of that operator's handsets. Openwave believes that this will lead to a better app experience for end users while bringing in more money for both the operator and the developers. In addition to announcing Amplicity, Openwave announced that GetJar will integrate Amplicity into its app store. Openwave and GetJar say that the integration of these two products will allow developers to "write once, publish everywhere" — across mobile device platforms and carriers. They believe it will help developers circumnavigate the fragmentation of systems and networks around the world.
