Motorola Solutions Offers HTML5 Framework for Device Applications

Motorola Solutions, Inc., a provider of enterprise communication products, software and services, has announced the availability of a web-based application framework designed to enable businesses to develop and deploy web-based applications on existing Motorola Windows Embedded Handheld (formerly known as Windows Mobile) and Windows Embedded Compact (Win-CE) mobile computers, as well as Motorola's recently announced ET1 Android-based enterprise tablet. Motorola RhoElements is the first of several product releases targeted at developers within Motorola's customer base and PartnerEmpower ecosystem, the vendor says.

"Channel partners and customers are increasingly challenged by the need to develop, maintain and manage enterprise applications with compelling user experiences across multiple operating system and device platforms," says Suhas Uliyar, chief solutions architect for mobile computing at Motorola. "With the introduction of RhoElements, the acquisition of Rhomobile and our overall developer tools strategy, Motorola Solutions is helping to position the enterprise mobile computing industry for the future by reducing the impact of operating system disruption and easing the pain of migration from legacy solutions to the next generation of devices and applications in the market."

Motorola acquired Rhomobile on July 29th of this year. Motorola expects to announce additional cross-platform application development tools, enterprise integration components and cloud-based services for channel partners and customers leveraging Rhomobile's product suite in the coming months.

Leveraging Motorola's PocketBrowser product, a framework for web-based line-of-business applications, RhoElements provides a new way to develop applications on existing Windows-based industrial mobile computers and offers a bridge for application support on future mobile computing devices and operating systems.

RhoElements provides a modern HTML5/advanced JavaScript/CSS application framework for high-performance web-based applications, enabling customers to transition from terminal emulation solutions or legacy browser-based applications to web-based applications.
