Our sources tell us that Palm is letting developers know that they will be able to start selling Apps beginning March 31st. Applications will be able to be purchased worldwide once the applications go on sale. International application sales is one area where Palm is looking to have an advantage over other application stores because of the easy approval process for international sales. Tell Palm that you want the app to be available for sale internationally and then resubmit it, and it will in turn be rushed though the approval process. As far as International sales go, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, Mexico, and Spin will be the first to get International app sales. The news is good for Palm, who can use the income generated from the app sales; in addition, it addresses the perception that the WebOS platform does not have any applications. Our sources tell us that Palm has a stockpile of apps that are ready to go for sale as soon as the switch is thrown. If this is true, it could be a very big day for Palm and could help get the company back on the right track once again.

The Intel AppUp Center has a wide range of apps for netbooks, which often don't have the horsepower to run most PC applications. These apps are tuned to run without a lot of bells and whistles. That's why they can run on any netbook, adding very little cost. To help the market take off, Intel introduced a Windows version of its app store at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. ----Now it will add an Intel AppUpCenter beta for Mobilin version 2.1. Intel is also making the existing AppUp Center available in 27 European cities on March 31.

Tofel Jun. 16, 2010, 1:05pm PT 2 Comments 0 Like Be the first of your friends to like this. Research In Motion has unveiled the latest version of its mobile software store, BlackBerry App World 2.0, which will support carrier billing for application purchases and enable developers to use QR barcode links for their software titles (and thus make it easier for customers to find applications). Along with the new storefront, RIM will also reportedly implement a singular BlackBerry ID to track purchases and allow for easy software and data transfer from one BlackBerry device to another. When RIM launched the initial App World in March of 2009, Om declared it to be "good enough." But by modernizing its BlackBerry App World, RIM is following a proven model when it comes to mobile software — if you remove clunkiness and make it easy to find, purchase and transfer data, customers will buy more software and services. The sales cycle doesn't end with consumers, though; improving a mobile pau_stoa also helps bring developers to a platform. Given the right tools, support and financial incentives, programmers are more apt to create compelling software titles for a device. Without such support, a handset vendor runs the risk of developers leaving for other platforms, creating a downward sales spiral.

Page 2 of 7 Handset makers still need to create desirable hardware, but making smart software available in a simple-to-use and effective mobile store is a key ingredient in the recipe for smartphone success. This is especially true for RIM, as noted in a recent Giga0M Pro report (subscription required). Unfortunately, it's taken the company until now to figure this out; in the meantime, nimble rivals have perfected the model — and in Apple's case, used it to generate a billion dollars in revenue for developers. And the clock doesn't stop ticking with RIM's unveiling today as it hasn't yet announced the launch date for the new store. Tick-tock, RIM. Tick-tock.

It's still unclear what the new Android exclusive application store will be called and when it will arrive, but Engadget suggests that Amazon will have its new digital endeavor ready for the holiday season. Amazon — America's largest online retailer, will apparently require software to be run through a "App Packaging Tool" before it can be submitted to the store. According to Amazon, it will "ensure that the apps will install properly on customers' devices and... enable the digital rights management (DRM) policies outlined in the developer agreement." DRM is optional, and developers may freely decide whether to enable it or not. Developers can also submit demo videos that will be displayed next to their apps – a welcome feature that the Android Market currently does not have. Amazon won't allow "offensive content" to be published in its store, and the company will have final say on the matter, thus leaving the door open for some iOS App Store censorship. What do you think about yet another app market for Android? Is it a nice addition that will benefit the Android ecosystem, or are multiple app stores just one more way of fragmenting the platform?

" Open Web Apps will feature a directory of paid and free Web apps where you can search for, download and install apps onto a special dashboard within your mobile phone or Web browser. The dashboard lets you view, delete, and organize your apps. Apps can built in HTML, CSS, or JavaScript, which means interoperability between browsers, mobile phones, and operating systems. According to Mozilla's blog, such openness will force developers to "compete on customer service, price, policies, app discoverability, ratings, reviews and other attributes." "Many of us now use Web apps for tasks we used to have dedicated desktop software for. A couple examples of where this migration is happening include checking e-mail, talking to our friends, listening to music and even playing games," Mozilla said in a blog post. "Because our behavior is changing, it only makes sense that the tools we use on the computer where these behaviours are expressed change as well," the company said. Google is prepping a similar Web store for its Chrome browser. The company Google first provided a preview of the Chrome Web store at is Google I/0 developer conference in May; days later, Mozilla then announced plans for its own Web app store. Google released a developer preview for the Chrome apps store in August. Days before, there were rumors that Google would release the app store sometime in October, but no announcement have been 11,16,6.11 made. Developers can find technical information and source code on Mozilla's site.

Text By IAN SHERR Lexmark International Inc. is seeking software developers to create applications for some of its business printers, a move the company hopes will increase competition with industry leader Hewlett-Packard Co. We know there's more to meeting demand than adding bandwidth. Lexmark plans to open an app store and release specialized tools that allow developers to create apps for four of its printer have touchscreens and Internet connections. The company says the goal is to expand the capabilities of its devices in the same way other companies have expanded the functionality of cellphones and cars by adding apps. "Content for printers has largely been limited to the world that you see on a PC," said Todd Hamblin, a Lexmark marketing executive. "Now, they're going directly to the Internet without a computer." Lexmark already offers about 60 apps, developed by the company and its partners, for download to its printers. One example, is an app from Triplt.com , that will print a travel itinerary directly from the printer. Another, called "Scan to Box" will scan and send documents to Box.net —a file Most Popular in Tech server on the web—without the use of a computer.

RIM Stirs Investor Doubts Lexmark's app store comes as many companies try to adopt a model honed by Apple Inc. with its iPhoneM5r1 devices. Introduced in 2008, Apple's app store now sports a catalog of more than 300,000 apps which have been downloaded a total of more than 7 billion times. Ford Motor Baby's First App Download Money Rushes Into Social Start-Ups Co., Google Inc. and Intel Corp. are among the companies that have invited developers to write programs to be used in conjunction with their products. Gartner analyst Pete Basiliere said Lexmark and H-P are striving to keep their customers using their products in a market full of nearly identical products. "From a manufacturer's perspective, they're facing declining printing volume overall," he said.

H-P is also focusing on services apps, such as printing photos from the company's Snapfish online photo service, an H-P spokeswoman added. Lexmark said it doesn't yet have a revenue-sharing model for outside developers, but Mr. Hamblin said it would likely be similar to the model adopted by Apple and others for their app stores. Apple keeps 30% of app sales and gives 70% of the revenue derived to developers. moRE iN TECH rqj Email WI Printer Fhendly t Share: In 90 Order Reprints Oi• 0 f F al do Page 107 http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303467004575574333014975588.html 3/27/2011 Lexmark Tries to Catch App Fever - WSJ.com Page 2 of 4 ,AMMAIMAMINVP Like Most Popular on Facebook Be the first of your friends to like this. .

Sign up today and get a 4 week RISK-FREE trial to the Financial Times Newspaper. More Acer's "Next Generation Store" will be available on all its devices, from PCs to smartphones and tablets, and also across different operating systems including Google's Android, Window's Phone 7 and Intel and Nokia's MeeGo, according to Gianfranco Land, Acer chief executive. Mr Land said Acer's offering would be an improvement to existing application stores, such as those from Apple or Google, because it would recommend programs and applications based on the consumer's profile and usage history. He did not, however, elaborate on how Acer's store would differ in this regard from Apple's, which already offers recommendations based on previous purchases. "Today one of the problems is that on Apple and Android phones you get thousands of content [from their application stores] but you don't know which one is the one you want," he said. The move represents a fresh push by the Taiwanese computer maker to expand its reach beyond traditional desktop and notebook PCs into new product categories such as smartphones, tablets and internet-enabled televisions, where consumers place greater importance on services and content than on hardware specifications. "Hardware without software is not going to fly," Mr Land said, but added that he didn't think "the number one goal is to make money from" running an application store. He acknowledged that there had already been a proliferation of application stores in recent months, but said Acer's would have a unique advantage in emerging markets because the company would localise the service to a range of emerging market countries. "We will be the first one and the only one with this capability," he said. Acer also remained bullish about the overall PC market in spite of worries about weakening conditions.

Once the developer is able to create the application in Qt, it can easily then be deployed to Nokia devices on both the Symbian and MeeGo platforms. This will help Nokia enhance the popularity of its Ovi store and increase the availability of apps on its app store. ADDISON WIGGIN Fa ADRIAN ASH IL ALAN B. LANCZ 21 !

Nokia mobile phone users will experience the software improvements much faster. For example, if a customer's Nokia phone is based on the Symbian 3 platform, he won't have to wait for the Symbian 4 to arrive in the market to experience the software related improvements. A single platform will ensure that the improvements that Nokia plans for Symbian 4 will be introduced on the Symbian 3 phones as and when available.

Verizon Wireless will officially open the doors to its Android V Cast Apps store next week, the carrier has confirmed. The V Cast Apps store will initially launch on the HTC Droid Incredible; a software update will deliver access along with a handful of general improvements to the phone. Other Verizon Android devices will soon follow suit. So what's Verizon's Android app store really all about, and what'll it mean for you? I spoke with someone from Verizon to get the full scoop. Verizon's Android App Store and the Android Market First of all, Verizon's V Cast Apps store won't override Google's main Android Market. The V Cast Apps store will simply be a second option built into devices; Google's Android Market and Verizon's new store will be equally accessible. "We look at as a complementary store to the other stores that are out there," Verizon Wireless spokesperson Debi Lewis explains. Verizon actually launched a similar version of its store on BlackBerry phones earlier this year; the configuration on that platform is pretty much the same.
