Virtual Lab to increase speed of game development

Sony Ericsson has unveiled a new online testing service to speed Java application development, including games.

The Sony Ericsson Virtual Lab will provide Java developers with a means to develop, test, and monitor applications on SE phones in a quicker and cheaper manner than before. The lab is powered by Mobile Complete’s DeviceAnywhere platform.

The online service is available globally 24/7 to all members of Sony Ericsson Developer World and provides support for pre-commercial mobile phones released by the company. As a result, developers no longer need to invest in device labs or even be physically present on an operator’s network.

Ulf Wretling, general manager and head of content planning and management at Sony Ericsson, said: “With this launch, Sony Ericsson is responding to consistent developer feedback about the importance of having early access to phones and prototypes for testing purposes.”

The service allows developers to remotely access 2007 phones that are not yet commercially available. Its gone live with six mass-market feature phone models announced in 2007.
