I just had a meeting with some folks who are deeply involved into the application development for Smartphones and here we go for the first good news: Carrier Devices is ready to introduce its new certifcation service for mobile applications:

"Carrier Devices Certification service (CDC) is the world's first worldwide standard guarantee from mobile applications. Created in partnership with Sasken, a world leading software solution provider, CDC provides a forum for GSM and GPRS accreditation and certification for software developed for Pocket PC Phone Edition, Smartphone and even Symbian and Java devices".

CDC should help to close the gap of application certification as already used on Orange's SPV Smartphone and as Jim Morrison, head of technology development at Carrier Devices promissed me, they will work with everybody, from freeware to shareware to commercial software. If you are interessted in getting in thouch with Carrier Devices to get your apps signed for the Orange SPV (and maybe others too soon), just contact them here.

The second great news I got is that we will see soon around 200 games available for the Orange SPV! :-) Who told you there are no applications available for the Smartphone!? ;-) Well, it takes time but remember that the Smartphone is introduces in some markets only for a couple of months and we will see more devices pretty soon. Also the genral feedback here in Cannes about the Microsoft Smartphone platform is super positive! I'm sure more operators will follow Orange, Smart and T-Mobile soon and will introduce new Smartphone devices as well as we will see a lot of other new companies like red e who will also release new devices.
Pretty exciting that finally - after 3 years of development the Smartphone platform is ramping up!

Cheers ~ Arne
