ACCESS CO., LTD. and PalmSource, Inc. are announcing the ACCESS Developer Network, a new online resource designed to accelerate the creation, distribution and usage of mobile Linux applications for devices based on the ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP).
The goal of the ACCESS Developer Network is to help Linux application developers "go mobile" and provide companies seeking to tap into the rapidly growing worldwide mobile Linux applications market with exclusive access to in-depth technical information and enhanced business development support.
The new ACCESS Developer Network is expected to extend the PalmSource developer community by providing developer support & services for ACCESS' next generation mobile Linux platform, ALP. The ADN will provide extensive technical and business information on mobile Linux application development to new Linux developers and more than 420,000 existing registered members of the Palm OS Developer Program.
ACCESS and PalmSource, through the ACCESS Developer Network, will work closely with developers to optimize their mobile applications to run on the ALP platform.
The companies are trying to replicate PalmSource's experience with the Palm Powered developer program. The ADN is expected to launch to the public later in 2006, but developers can register now to be notified when the ADN is launched.
