- AlicantOS Mobile allows developers and businesses to create new mobile applications and deploy them easily across different devices -

London, UK and Boston, US, 09 February 2009 – Barros Technologies, a specialist in software and services to enable mobile and collaborative working independent of technology platform and device, has unveiled plans for AlicantOS Mobile, a mobile-based operating system that will enable businesses and software development firms to create and deploy innovative, web-based mobile applications.

AlicantOS Mobile is the mobile platform of Barros’ AlicantOS internet operating system. AlicantOS Mobile provides a centralised, visual development environment for the design and deployment of web-based mobile applications. It is platform and device-agnostic, enabling developers to build applications that will run automatically across all major mobile devices including the BlackBerry, the Apple iPhone and Symbian-based smartphones.

Mobile applications are becoming indispensable for business users and consumers alike. The desire to stay in touch and remain productive while on the move has created an explosion in applications for mobile devices: there are now more than 10,000 applications available for Apple’s iPhone alone . Independent developers can use AlicantOS Mobile to tap into this burgeoning market, while in-house development teams can use it to deliver productivity-enhancing applications to mobile employees.

As well as providing an easy way for businesses and developers to create their own mobile applications, Barros is also working on a development schedule of applications that will enhance mobile working, collaboration and data sharing. The roadmap includes applications for internet-enabled devices and platforms such as the iPhone, Google’s Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, smartphones and other mobile devices. Two applications in development include a social networking and collaborative photo application, and a mobile commerce platform. These applications will be launched in the next quarter,

Barros has long experience in developing virtual operating environments and operating systems. The new AlicantOS Mobile platform is an extension of the company’s existing AlicantOS operating system; a centralised, virtual environment that allows organisations to deploy and integrate applications across different platforms and devices, thereby lowering their operating and maintenance costs.

Mobile applications developers can use the AlicantOS Visual Programming Framework, an online web development and deployment platform, to create new mobile applications and integrate them with existing business systems. The VPF is an intuitive WYSIWYG development platform, with drag-and-drop page design.

John Caine, MBE and Executive Chairman of Barros Technologies, said: “All Barros Technologies’ efforts and R&D investments are focused towards enabling mobile business collaboration. The AlicantOS platform aims to enable the next-generation of business internet and mobile technologies. The web-centric computing approach we are taking provides companies with huge reductions in costs whilst providing the flexibility, mobility and scalable IT infrastructure that businesses now require in order to remain competitive. Our vision is to enable true mobile collaboration.”
