AOL announces Open Mobile Software Platform
Posted on 12-Feb-2008 09:39. | Tags Filed under: News.



AOL has announced the AOL Open Mobile Platform, which it plans to make available to developers this summer (U.S.). The company says this new open platform will help stimulate innovation by providing developers with ready access to the tools and source code they need to build and distribute mobile applications.

Developers will be able to create applications for a wide variety of mobile devices across all major mobile device platforms and operating systems including BREW, Java, Linux, RIM, Symbian, and Windows Mobile.

The AOL Open Mobile Platform is based on technology acquired by AOL that has been deployed across more than 150 different handsets on carrier networks in the U.S. The platform will consist of three components: an XML-based, markup language; an ultra-lightweight mobile device client; and an application server.

A dynamic presentation layer will allow for rapid deployment of new features and easy optimization for a wide variety of mobile devices, allowing developers to build and update applications once, and then distribute them across all supported devices and platforms.

In addition, it will be possible to integrate applications built using the AOL Open Mobile Platform with third-party APIs, as well as with AOLís open APIs for AIM, AOL Mail, AOL Video, MapQuest, Userplane, Truveo, Winamp, and others.

The AOL Open Mobile Platform will also give developers the ability to monetize their mobile applications by utilizing advertising resources, such as clickable banner ads, provided by AOL's Platform-A.

The AOL Open Mobile Platform is expected to be available this summer (U.S.).
