Palm Opens Virtual Developer Doors
Posted by Jon Westfall in "Pocket PC Developer" @ 09:00 AM
"For the legions of developers anxious to use their talents to build for Palm (yes, all four of you), listen up. By partnering with DeviceAnywhere, Palm has opened up its Virtual Developer Lab, which enables devs to remotely access actual Treo / Centro handsets in order to test out software, capture screen shots / video of processes, create an audit trail through the capturing of keystrokes and share data / collaborate with colleagues online. If you're swearing up and down that this stuff isn't new, you're not (entirely) crazy -- DeviceAnywhere has been offering up this remote demo access on a variety of handsets for quite some time."
This is kinda interesting - remote access to actual devices to run testing on when you're about to launch your Palm product. Now I'm not sure how many of us are Palm developers (either on the Palm OS or a WM Palm), but I wish Microsoft had something similar to this!
