Extend Logic announced today an ambitious program to train a large group of iPhone developers to meet the demand for new “for China” apps and games. Here (below) is a short excerpt from the press release > Full PR
ExtendLogic announced today that its delivery center based in Xi’an of China has teamed up with training organization, Xi’an Sotraining Software Technology Training Centre to produce massive iPhone developers in China’s 3G R&D center.
As a global leading IT outsourcing company especially focusing on Smartphone solutions, ExtendLogic has built up a strong iPhone team in its delivery center in Xi’an. But the requirements of iPhone projects from U.S. are dramatically increasing and China market of iPhone application development & localization is emerging as it is reportedly that iPhone will be introduced into China Market in this May* by cooperating with China Unicom, so more skilled iPhone developers are required to meet the big market demands.
iPhonAsia comment: *Guesswork: iPhonAsia believes the iPhone deal with China Unicom will be announced either May 17 (World Telecom Day + day China Unicom will begin a trial launch of their new WCDMA 3G network in 55 cities) or June 9 (WWDC 2009 Keynote) and will launch mid to late summer. The important caveat is the necessary MIIT approval of the new iPhone models.
