ARGOGROUP LAUNCHES DEVZONE, REMARKABLE NEW ONLINE SUPPORT FOR DEVELOPERS OF WIRELESS SERVICES Wednesday 23 May 2001 PDF Print Argogroup, the leading supplier of device intelligence for the wireless Internet, today announced the launch of the Argogroup DevZone web site - an on-line resource designed to assist application developers and industry professionals in deploying successful wireless services. The site, which forms the centrepiece of the company's Developer Relations Programme, emphasises Argogroup's commitment to providing device intelligence - and complements the company's range of interoperability infrastructure products, tools, and services. The DevZone's primary function is to provide a centralised repository of wireless device information that helps service providers and application developers to understand the issues and complexity created by wireless device diversity. As a result of using the site, developers can speed up their design and development efforts. The site will, for example, provide WAP device profiles in the standard UAProf format, as well as providing known future-release schedules. The DevZone will also contain a wide range of supporting resources for developers, such as whitepapers on wireless architectural principles, industry news, tools for download and other related Argogroup initiatives. James Pearce, Argogroup's VP of Developer Relations, said, "Argogroup has traditionally offered a lot of value to content providers, infrastructure providers, and platform vendors. Using Argogroup products and services we have provided them with the opportunity to test, measure and optimize their wireless content and services. The DevZone is a natural extension of this; it provides rich lifecycle support for those organisations by strengthening the Argogroup portfolio for pre-deployment activities." Grant Lemke, the founder of WAPWednesday and Wireless Around People, agrees that Argogroup's commitment to developers is a boost to the industry. "Argogroup's wireless device knowledge is world-class, and it's really exciting to see this being made available through this resource. Wireless Internet has such exciting potential, but we need companies like Argogroup and resources like the DevZone to turn that potential into reality. I applaud Argogroup for their commitment to the DevZone." - ends - About Argogroup Argogroup are the leaders in device intelligence for the wireless Internet.
