Last month, the company announced its selection by Microsoft to accelerate new applications on Windows Phone, (including support for the Mobile Acceleration Week events for the third consecutive year), followed by the announcement of its selection by Microsoft to enhance the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync Logo Program (EAS) by identifying smartphones and tablets that are enterprise ready.
