HTC recently announced its HTCdev program which is designed to support mobile developers through tools, resources and community.

HTC has launched HTCdev, a program designed to support mobile developers through tools, resources and community. HTC also announced the HTC OpenSense SDK which will allow developers to harness software and hardware innovations on HTC phones to develop more richly integrated mobile applications and experiences. In launching HTCdev, together with the HTCPro program launched last year, HTC is creating a network of resources to help developers and businesses meet challenges and opportunities across the mobile space.

The HTCdev program will support developers across the industry and around the world, from individuals to large enterprises. The new program website,, is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2011 and will feature an extensive resource library of tutorials, best-practices, documentation and support. The site will also offer a user feedback channel to HTC for on-going investments and improvement to the developer toolset and program resources.

The core offering of the program will be the HTC OpenSense SDK, which will enable Android developers to more deeply integrate into the HTC Sense 3.0 experience. The framework will also provide APIs and sample code for 3D display and the Tablet pen. The HTC OpenSense SDK will be released in parallel with the launch of the new site, and will have regular updates and expansions based on inputs from the developer community.
