Vodafone Betavine merges web 2.0 and R&D Labs
Posted on 25-Feb-2007 09:15. | Tags Filed under: News.

The Vodafone R&D Labs has launched the Vodafone Betavine, aiming to apply some of the principles of Web 2.0 to R&D in the mobile and Internet communications space, in particular, openness, collaboration and collective intelligence.

Vodafone Betavine is focused in becoming a place where developers, students and early adopters can meet as peers to work together on new concepts and technologies in the mobile and Internet communications space.

The first phase of the site focusses on application upload and download, and the site admins hope to encourage people with an interest in mobile and Internet communications to share ideas and applications with the community, to test and refine those ideas and applications.

There are plans to offer student competitions, an open source zone via our Vodafone Betavine Forge, and a set of development APIs to communications functionality like text and picture messaging.

General visitors to the site can see the projects, downloads and forum discussions that are happening in the Vodafone Betavine community. Registered users can access the application downloads, play with them and join in with the general discussions on the website and help shape the application development. Developers can create their own project space, describe and blog about their concept and upload applications.
