AT&T lets developers in

14 Mar 2008

Yesterday AT&T posted documents on its web site showing developers how to create applications for its wireless network. The move follows rival Verizon Wireless’ decision in late November to allow any device or software to run over its network. AT&T hopes the move will encourage innovation of new services by letting developers access the documents which provide guidelines on what the company and its customers are after; the documents were previously only available to partner developers and handset makers that regularly work with AT&T. Jacob Stybursky, director of user experience said, ‘The main goal…is to actively encourage third-party developers, designers and handset makers to use the Universal Design to foster innovation’.
