HTC Kicks Off HTCdev Portal
HTC today announced that HTCdev.com is fully up and running. First announced in June, the developer program is meant to help developers interested in targeting HTC's handsets access the tools and resources they need to more effectively develop for HTC handsets. There are several SDKs available from HTCdev that target several HTC-specific features/devices, such as the 3D cameras on the EVO 3D, and the stylus for the Flyer/View 4G tablet. HTC said that the program will receive regular updates to the number and types of tools available based on developer feedback. The site also provides access to kernel source codes for HTC products and will be the future home for instructions on how to unlock bootloaders.
