Each ISV is eligible for one Smartphone or Pocket PC application logo test at no charge, with referral from MicrosoftÂs Mobile2Market program. Logo testing for additional applications will be offered to attendees who apply at the show for the discounted price of US $250, or 50 percent off the standard US $500 price.
In addition, a special Pre-Certification Kit will be announced at the show with information to help ISVs streamline the logo testing process and avoid common pitfalls.
Finally, attendees who sign up for logo certification will receive a significant discount for localization testing of their software. QualityLogic are localization testing experts, with native speakers to verify 37 different languages.
To date, QualityLogic has tested over 200 applications under the Pocket PC and Smartphone logo programs, ensuring developers that their mobile applications take advantage of features specific to Windows Powered Smartphone or Windows Powered Pocket PC software.
ÂAs the Mobility Developers Conference and Mobile2Market initiative demonstrate, developers are at the core of MicrosoftÂs strategy for Windows Powered mobile devices,Â said Mark Spain, director of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. ÂWe are excited that QualityLogic continues to add its expertise and value to our certification programs, as well as provide an expanding value proposition to mobile developers and ISVs.Â
The Designed for Windows for Smartphone and Designed for Windows for Pocket PC logos give the application an edge, since buyers know that the certified application met MicrosoftÂs advanced requirements. Additionally, certified applications qualify for inclusion in MicrosoftÂs Mobile2Market program.
ISVs whose applications receive either logo are eligible to join the Microsoft Certified Partner Program at the Member level. Microsoft Certified Partners (MCPs) benefit from a simplified distribution process, technical support, increased revenue, faster time to market, and market recognition opportunities that are made available exclusively to MCPs.
