BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 25, 2013-- Keynote® (NASDAQ: KEYN), the global leader in Internet and mobile cloud testing and monitoring, today announced device support for iOS 6, Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and Windows 8 devices with its DeviceAnywhere platform. The newest additions to the Keynote device portfolio extend the company’s position as the market leader in devices supported for real mobile device testing. DeviceAnywhere support now includes the newest popular devices including the iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and the Droid RAZR M.
Delivering a consistent high-quality mobile experience continues to be a major challenge for companies interested in reaching a diverse universe of mobile users. Keeping up with the continually evolving device ecosystem presents some of the biggest challenges facing QA teams. While the number of operating systems and OEM device manufacturers are shrinking, device fragmentation continues to be a big issue. Testers new to mobile quickly realize that one Android device may behave quite differently than the next. Meanwhile, Apple has introduced new form factors for their iOS devices with the introduction of iPhone 5 and iPad mini. As new Windows 8 and BlackBerry OS devices also hit the market, device fragmentation adds an additional layer of complexity to mobile development. By adding the most up-to-date mobile devices to the DeviceAnywhere library, Keynote helps testers keep up with the changing mobile landscape, while maintaining the flexibility needed to address future changes.
“As an increasing number of new mobile device types and form factors arise, Keynote is delivering the most up-to-date mobile testing solutions in the market,” said Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate development at Keynote. “The ability to test across the latest device models and form factors with real devices gives users the most accurate way to test their mobile websites and mobile apps without the overhead of purchasing and maintaining a portfolio of mobile devices. With the addition of these new devices across the DeviceAnywhere platform, users are able to leverage the power of real, remote, manual and automated device testing from the cloud.”
All existing Keynote DeviceAnywhere customers will have access to the newly supported devices from all products including: DeviceAnywhere Test Center Developer®, DeviceAnywhere TCE Interactive®, DeviceAnywhere TCE Automation® and DeviceAnywhere TCE Monitoring®.
Keynote also recently introduced DeviceAnywhere Free, the first completely free tool for remote, real device interactive testing; giving users a real-time view of their mobile websites on select smartphones via a streamlined Web interface. When a user's needs surpasses basic spot-checking, Keynote’s Test Center Developer and Test Center Enterprise provide a seamless upgrade path to fully test mobile websites and applications.
