Sybase iAnywhere Announces Android Support



Sybase iAnywhere has announced a new version of its iAnywhere Blue SDK that will help developers incorporate Bluetooth capabilities into Android devices. With the underlying Bluetooth functionality running on a Linux based 2.6.x kernel, the Sybase iAnywhere Blue SDK provides necessary application layer support for developers to effectively add increased wireless flexibility to the rich Android framework.

The Sybase iAnywhere Blue SDK for Android extends the Android platform by strengthening it with industry standard application profiles, including: Handsfree (HFP), Advanced Audio Distribution (A2DP), A/V Remote Control (AVRCP), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Object Push Protocol (OPP), SIM Access (SAP), Phone Book Access (PBAP), Message Access Profile (MAP), Human Interface (HID), Basic Printing (BPP) and Basic Imaging (BIP).

"We are extremely pleased to add the Android framework to our growing list of Bluetooth ported products and continue building out our extensive device support strategy for Sybase's customer and partner ecosystem," said Sybase's Terry Stepien. "As Bluetooth functionality continues to gain popularity in the telematics and consumer electronics marketplace, developers require an extremely effective way to extend those features to various wireless platforms, including Android. Our commercial Bluetooth stack is extremely reliable with more qualified application profiles for Android than any other market solution and we offer a high level of technical support for those customers that require it."
