Borqs, the mobile communications software specialist, has achieved industry approval from WAC (Wholesale Applications Community) for its software technology, which enables Android smartphones to run "Web Apps" for WAC’s new mobile application platform.
Sporting full backward-compatibility, Borqs’ Web Runtime is designed to support both WAC 1.0 and WAC 2.0 specifications. The software vendor now has a 100% compliant WAC 1.0 runtime as of today and is well into WAC 2.0 development, which will offer even richer features for WAC application developers.
Its compelling runtime is downloadable and supports adding WAC Apps directly to the Homescreen, which can be used in both "full-screen" and "floating" modes. Borqs also offers an SDK for developing both WAC 1.0 and WAC 2.0 Web Applications on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Borqs, using extensive Android platform and Web expertise, has also integrated its runtime with native services such as Email and Camera, and advanced web services like SVG, allowing OEM and Operator partners to design unique WAC-based user experiences with seamless platform integration.
The company has pioneered Android platform customisation, application software and operator service development since its inception in 2007. Borqs has now launched more than 25 models of Android device with their Web Runtime in the China Mobile network.
By the end of 2011 an estimated total 3 million devices will be running apps on Borqs’ Web Runtime.
