SANTA CRUZ, CA – August 12, 2009 – One in five developers working on applications for wireless devices are currently writing apps to run on netbooks, and an additional 24% expect to be writing apps to run on netbooks in the coming year, according to Evans Data's new Wireless Development Survey released last week to subscribers. While the number of those currently developing is fairly equal across geographical regions, the number of those having plans for the coming year is almost twice as much in Asia as in other regions.
The extensive survey of over 400 wireless developers worldwide measures intentions and adoption patterns through in-depth interviews on subjects related to Wireless development. This includes platforms, carriers, programs, tools, and the business of wireless development and distribution of wireless applications.
Other highlights from the survey include:
- Support for particular programming languages is the primary consideration in selecting a target wireless platform.
- AT&T is the carrier that wireless developers feel is providing the best mobile application distribution (20.6%), the best tools (15.2%, and the best supported technologies (18.3%).
- Forty percent of wireless developers are working on apps that offer an online payment solution.
