Sony launches Remote Device Lab for devs to test Xperia app/game compatibility

remote_device_lab_660x384Sony has launched a new service for developers called “Remote Device Lab”, which acts as a virtual Xperia environment on which to test apps and games. It means that devs can make sure their new apps/games or even updates work correctly on a number of Xperia devices including the Xperia Z1, Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3.

It means that developers do not need to buy a range of Sony Xperia devices just to ensure app compatibility. The lab works by remotely connecting to real devices through a web interface. So devs can interact with these devices as if they were in their hands. They include a SIM card (phone calls are blocked though) and data traffic is enabled. The Remote Device Lab is currently in beta and sounds a like great addition for developers.

Thanks Armaan and Ben!

  • Sony keeps impressing me more and more. Ever since I bought my Duo and then my NEX-7 camera, I actually get excited hearing news about what new things are coming from Sony! They had a bad period with respect to designs and compatibility but man have they come out of that with a great campaign and product line! Kudos!

    In Android world, most of android devices are from Samsung so devs care Samsung Galaxy devices first!

    Keep up the good work, Sony!
    I am glad to see you improving days after days.

    It’s just a concept dude! I expect it to be much better looking than that in the final product.

    WOW! that’s awesome, so meaning alot of apps should be more compatible with Xperia with less cost on the developers’ cost. Also, Sony is making friends everywhere, building a network.
