Microsoft Launches Accelerator Program for Windows Mobile Services

Microsoft announced a Connected Services Accelerator Program, a series of projects designed to incubate, and ultimately commercialize, new types of consumer, business and mobile services through collaboration with independent software vendors (ISVs), developers and operators.


Microsoft will collaborate with SingTel on the program's first project, the Mobile Connected Services Accelerator. All Accelerator projects will utilize Microsoft Connected Services Sandbox as the platform for the creation, development and testing of these innovative new services.


Microsoft said the objective of the Mobile Connected Services Accelerator is to develop a new, cutting-edge mobile application for a vertical industry, which can be supported on Windows Mobile-based devices as well as Windows Vista-enabled mobile broadband PCs. Examples of such applications include the collection of patient data in healthcare, telemetry and fleet-management solutions, real-time financial services, equipment and property management, and utilities management. SingTel will make its state-of-the-art infrastructure and resources available to participants for development and testing purposes.http://www.microsoft.comhttp://www.singtel.com
