Original Press Release:
Motorola Redefines the Developer Experience with New MOTODEV Studio
Delivers seamless, open development framework to support innovation across Motorola products
ORLANDO, Fla., March 27 // - CTIA WIRELESS 2007 -
Today at CTIA Wireless, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced MOTODEV Studio,
an innovative and integrated new platform for third-party application
development. Based on an open framework enabled by Eclipse, MOTODEV Studio is
designed to accelerate the application development life cycle - from
requirements definition to testing and deployment. Extensible and modular, the
MOTODEV Studio supports plug-ins for new product tools and delivers updates
and new features through a web-based service, ensuring that developers always
have the latest functionality. Aligning with Motorola's seamless mobility
strategy, MOTODEV Studio will support application development across all of
Motorola's products - including mobile, connected home, and enterprise
In its first release, Motorola is introducing MOTODEV Studio for Java ME -
a complete Java ME application development platform for mobile handsets.
MOTODEV Studio for Java ME provides a full set of tools for compiling,
debugging, and testing mobile Java applications for Motorola's hottest 3GSM
devices. Instead of testing applications via the Java ME environment on the
handset, MOTODEV Studio for Java ME emulates individual Java API's on the
desktop, enabling developers to jump-start their development cycle before
phones are even available.
Maximum Flexibility for Minimal Complexity
In addition to MOTODEV Studio for Java ME, Motorola is offering a
standalone Motorola Java ME SDK. The SDK provides the same emulation and web-
based update features as MOTODEV Studio for Java ME, combined with the
flexibility to be integrated with other IDEs. This gives developers choice in
IDEs while significantly reducing the steps they must take to create, test and
deploy an application.
"With the new MOTODEV Studio platform, we're truly taking the developer
experience to the next level, offering a fresh new approach to how our
developer community innovates and communicates with Motorola," said Christy
Wyatt, vice president, ecosystem and market development, Motorola. "MOTODEV
Studio is another great example of how we are delivering on our promise of
connecting the developer community with the resources they need and executing
on Motorola's vision of seamless mobility."
"Software development for mobile devices is a high growth area within the
Eclipse community," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director, Eclipse
Foundation. "We are pleased to see Motorola's contribution and leadership to
help drive the success of Eclipse across a broad range of applications from
servers to handsets."
"As an open and modular framework, MOTODEV Studio will increase our
productivity in mobile application development - allowing us to focus on
providing exciting gaming experiences on Motorola products," said Gonzague de
Vallois, Vice President of Publishing, Gameloft.
"TeleNav is delighted to be part of the beta program for MOTODEV Studio,"
said Dr. Bob Rennard, CTO, TeleNav. "We believe that MOTODEV Studio will
accelerate development cycles and make it easier to deploy our applications on
Dialogue with MOTODEV
MOTODEV Studio provides developers with direct access to the information
they want and need via a unique communication channel. With one simple
download to the desktop, MOTODEV Studio will notify developers when new tools
and SDKs are available. The channel also keeps developers "in the know" on
recently announced Motorola handsets, MOTODEV events and special go-to-market
services available to them.
The initial release of the MOTODEV Studio framework featuring MOTODEV
Studio for JavaME will be available for registered MOTODEV developers to
download in late April 2007 at www.motorola.com/developer. The release will
include support tools for an array of new, "wickedly cool" handsets including
the stylish Motorola MOTOKRZR K1, ultra-fast MOTORAZR maxx V6 and the music-
optimized MOTOROKR Z6m.
