HP opens Asian mobile lab

SINGAPORE--Computer giant Hewlett-Packard has officially opened its first Asian mobile test lab. The facility will provide its Mobile E-services Bazaar (MEB) members and partners in the region with solutions to develop, port, test and deploy wireless applications, HP claimed. MEB is said to be a community of partners--including wireless developers, network operators, technology providers and systems integrators--that incubate and bring to market new wireless technologies and solutions. With the new lab, the development of applications and testing tools can be accessed remotely over the Internet, unlike the testing facilities under its MEB initiative which requires companies to conduct tests on-site, HP's E-Services Developer project manager Kip Darcy said. --Nawaz Marican, CNETAsia
