HTC has launched HTCdev in order to support developers and supply with the proper tools, resources and the community for feedback. The Taiwanese manufacturer also announced the HTC OpenSense SDK, “which will allow developers to harness software and hardware innovations on HTC phones to develop more richly integrated mobile applications and experiences”.
The HTCdev program is aiming to support developers from all over the world, regardless if they’re individuals or companies. The website will launch in summer 2011 and “will feature an extensive resource library of tutorials, best practices, documentation and support”. HTC OpenSense SDK will allow developers for Android to take advantage of the codes and APIs in order to create and integrate their apps with the new HTC Sense 3.0. OpenSense SDK will be released together with HTCdev.com in summer of 2011.
HTC is a company of engineers excited about the possibilities of the mobile space with the goal of fostering choice through innovation. We believe in openness and the power of imagination to create that innovation and are excited that HTCdev will extend new tools to mobile developers, helping them create the next wave of mobile experiences”, said Peter Chou, HTC’s CEO.
