Myriad Group AG (http://www.myriadgroup.com), which specializes in mobile technology, has unveiled Myriad Alien Dalvik 2.0, which will purportedly not only enable Android apps to run across non-Android smartphone platforms, but will now enable the Android ecosystem to be extended across multiple devices and screens such as tablets, e-books, TVs, automotives and even avionics.
Myriad will be showcasing Alien Dalvik 2.0 and its multi-screen strategy, demonstrating Android apps on an iPad for the first time at CTIA Enterprise & Applications 2011 next week.
“We have seen incredible momentum in Android adoption, but we are just scratching the surface,” says Myriad Group CEO Simon Wilkinson. “Digital screens such as Internet-enabled TVs and in-vehicle displays, along with other consumer devices like tablets and e-books are proliferating at an astounding rate. Consumers are driving multimedia evolution and are demanding more converged multi-screen services. With Alien Dalvik 2.0, we are creating a more flexible, consistent user experience by mobilizing content such as live sports, recorded TV shows and on-demand movies, so users can enjoy content seamlessly from one device to the next.”
He says Alien Dalvik 2.0 enables the majority of Android apps to run unmodified using Android Package (APK) files. What’s more, Alien Dalvik 2.0 enables developers to create once and use many times. From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik 2.0 is completely transparent and installed without user disruption, according to Wilkinson.
