Palm Introduces Palm Developer Program (PDN)
Posted on 14-Sep-2006 09:31. | Tags Filed under: News.



Palm, Inc. has launched the Palm Developer Network (PDN). PDN is designed for mobile hardware and software developers targeting Palm products and is the first formal developer program to include both Palm OS and Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PC developers.

The new program provides focused technical, business and marketing support, and replaces Palm's prior developer program, PluggedIn.

New services include a support library to answer developer questions, and a "Designed For Palm Products" compatibility test and logo program to help validate that the mobile solutions are compatible with Palm devices. Additional developer services are available for members of Palm's Select Developer Program. This is an invite-only group of top developers who consistently deliver highly valued consumer or business applications to customers worldwide.

The Select Developer Program is a new program for Palm's top developer partners who are responsible for driving significant business with Palm. This program offers select developers additional premium technical, marketing and sales services. Select program participation is by Palm invitation only; partner solutions must have successfully completed "Designed For Palm Products" compatibility testing for Select Developer consideration.

The "Designed For Palm Products" program executes a suite of compatibility tests appropriate for a mobile solution on Palm devices configured for typical customer usage. Solutions that successfully complete compatibility testing are awarded the "Designed For Palm Products" logo, enabling developers to extend brand value through the Palm brand. A nominal fee covers testing by an independent third-party mobile testing firm, Quality Partners.

Once a solution has successfully completed compatibility testing, it's eligible for a promotion through the new PDN Solution Directory. Palm customers worldwide will be able to search the Solution Directory for third-party applications. The PDN Solution Directory will be launched in late 2006.
