Mobile content development, monitoring, testing and deployment solutions provider DeviceAnywhere launched its new Palm Virtual Developer Lab, a web-based remote testing service that promises to reduce the time and resources required to create applications for Palm smartphones. Available to all developers who register for DeviceAnywhere's Palm package, the VDL offers support for all Palm in-market devices including the Treo 755p and the Palm Centro smartphone. The DeviceAnywhere solution bases its trials on real, physical handsets, eschewing a simulation-based approach--upon registering for the Palm VDL, developers may access Palm smartphones to press buttons, view LCD displays and listen to ringers and speakers, as well as employ monitoring and test automation tools. DeviceAnywhere also enables developers to collaborate with each other regardless of time or place.
