Plan for 2nd SDK Package release

M3 Mobile had developed and released SDKs of total six of M3 products – M3 GREEN, M3 T, M3 SKY, M3 OX10, M3 POS, M3 SMART- through last December to April.

When using new M3 product, however, there are some troubles that users should change their programs to be suitable for the PDA. One of the major Projects of M3 Mobile that combines all SDKs, to minimize this inconvenience, now gets into the final stage and it is going to be released at the end of the coming month.

The most significant change is that this one combined SDK package can be used at any products of M3 Mobile regardless of Windows version. The 2nd SDK pack can be used in both CE and Windows Mobile based product. All names of functions and files are standardized. Also, it will be installed automatically by installation program when the device is started. Screens applied new UI are presented below table. New ones are not yet decided so they can be changed when it’s released.

BLUETOOTH

 

SCANNER

Besides, there is addition of System SDK in combined SDK package so that users can obtain and control information of display, UUID and OS of their device. And its Application Manual will be produced and released within October, 2011.

We are looking forward to saving your time and effort caused by previous SDK packages and improving usage environment economically and efficiently.
