DeviceAnywhere Announces Xoom support

Mobile app testing company DeviceAnywhere has announced the global availability of the Motorola Xoom tablet for private cloud environments and its shared-access service, Test Center. Availability of the Xoom means that enterprises can now conduct the QA and monitoring necessary to standardise on the platform before wide-scale rollouts.

The Xoom is Motorolas first tablet device and the first device to feature the Android 3.0 Honeycomb Operating System, which is specifically tailored to tablet devices. Users of the device are also entitled to a free upgrade to Verizon Wirelesss 4G LTE network when it goes live later this year. The Xoom was named best tablet at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show, and also won CNET’s Best of Show award for being “the most potentially disruptive technology”.

“Increasingly, tablet rollouts are reaching the top of the priority list for many businesses we deal with,” says DeviceAnywhere CEO and co-founder, Faraz Syed. “Already this year, there is overwhelming evidence that enterprises have embraced the tablet form and are building strategic plans around them. The Motorola Xoom is an impressive tablet, which we expect will have strong appeal in the enterprise space.”

Separately, DeviceAnywhere has revealed that PosteMobile will be extending its use of MonitorAnywhere to evaluate how its services are performing on customers’ handsets. PosteMobile is Italy’s largest MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator).
