Web Developers - Create Mobile Apps easily with Sony Ericsson WebSDK
On 18th November 2009 at the Web 2.0 EXPO in New York, Sony Ericsson
announced the Sony Ericsson WebSDK. It is an open source tool created in
collaboration with the PhoneGap open source community. The SDK makes it
possible for web and mobile developers to create mobile apps using HTML,
access platform features and data such as accelerometer, GPS, Camera and
The WebSDK enables developers to produce applications which work
consistently independent of the underlying platform. It initially
supports Android (e.g. XPERIA(tm) X10) and Symbian (e.g. Satio(tm))
"With the Sony Ericsson WebSDK our focus is on bringing all the
capabilities of web technologies to mobile applications and giving web
developers wide access to easy-to-use tools and mobile phone platforms."
says Christopher David, Head of Developer and Partner Engagement at Sony
Ericsson. "We are driving this initiative together with the PhoneGap
open source community and invite developers to join us as we offer
advanced mobile devices and a clear monetization path."
Nitobi's CEO, Andre Charland added: "Sony Ericsson's collaboration with
the PhoneGap community is a huge win for mobile users, developers and
the future of the open web on mobile devices. Having already adopted and
benefited from open platforms like Google Android(tm) OS and Symbian,
Sony Ericsson is now completing the puzzle for developers of
cross-platform mobile applications."
