It wasn't long ago that Verious Inc (opens in new tab)., a leader in connecting developers with components and services for mobile app development, partnered with Microsoft to add Windows Phone development to their catalog. Verious already had a strong presence in the iOS and Android development community and the addition of the Windows Phone platform was seen as a plus. Verious is able to provide hundreds of pre-built mobile app components, open source projects, SDKs, and other tools to Windows Phone developers.
Today, Verious has announced a new partnership with Deutsche Telekom which enables Deutsche Telekom to launch the Developer Garden Component Marketplace for developers across Europe. This partnership will add significantly to the number of developer tools available for mobile application development. Deutsche Telekom previously announced plans to develop and promote tools that will help developers using Microsoft Visual Studio to mash up Deutsche Telekom's world-class network services with applications built for Microsoft Corp.'s device and cloud technology platforms. The partnership between Verious and Deutsche Telekom, coupled with the Deutsche Telekom partnership with Microsoft is expected to boost Windows Phone development significantly...
Along with Verious's catalog, Deutsche-Telekom will add its own telecom service APIs and components for enterprise software providers to enhance what the Developer Garden has to offer. The partnership will allow for mutual distribution and syndication of components to better enable developers to integrate components and core telecom service API's into their apps.
The Developer Garden Component Marketplace, powered by Verious, will enable developers to accelerate app development projects; discover enabling services to build into their apps; and tap into entirely new revenue streams. The Developer Garden will extend its reach across fourteen countries and increase the resources Windows Phone developers have access to. According to Anil Pereira, Founder and CEO of Verious,
Since adding Windows Phone development to their catalog, Verious has seen a rise in Windows Phone interest. Currently Windows Phone development is tied with iOS development as Verious's most popular category for development. It will be interesting to see if this partnership with Deutsche-Telekom will continue the popularity of Windows Phone development.

DEUTSCHE TELEKOM PARTNERS WITH VERIOUS TO BRING MOBILE APP COMPONENTS TO DEVELOPERS AND ENTERPRISES ACROSS EUROPE
Deutsche Telekom’s New Developer Garden Component Marketplace, Powered by Verious, Helps App Developers Turn Code Into Money
Extensive Catalogue of iOS, Windows Phone, Android and HTML5 Components Marketed Alongside Core Telecom APIs
SAN CARLOS, CA, July 3, 2012 –Verious Inc., the leader in connecting app publishers and developers with code for mobile app development, today announced a strategic partnership with Deutsche Telekom, enabling Deutsche Telekom to launch the Developer Garden Component Marketplace for developers across Europe. The partnership includes mutual distribution and syndication of software components to better enable enterprise developers, major publishers and independent app developers to find, discover and integrate components and core telecom service APIs into their apps, dramatically increasing efficiency and app monetization. Verious is providing both the infrastructure and initial component catalogue to Deutsche Telekom to seamlessly enable developers to buy and sell code for mobile app development. Deutsche Telekom adds its own telecom service APIs and components from enterprise software providers to enhance the Developer Garden offering.
With its Developer Garden Component Marketplace, Deutsche Telekom is the first telco to enter the fast emerging app component market. Verious’ experience in operating a worldwide marketplace for mobile app components and source code makes them the ideal partner and infrastructure provider for Deutsche Telekom.
“Deutsche Telekom is one of the largest and most innovative telecommunications providers in the world, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them,” said Anil Pereira, founder and CEO of Verious. “We have seen tremendous interest from seasoned developers in Europe looking for ways to make more money from their code. Partnering with Deutsche Telekom through developergarden.com brings enormous business and developer reach across 14 countries and an additional stable of APIs and software components that are tailor-made for enterprise app development.”
Verious’ extensive catalogue of thousands of mobile app components across major smartphone and tablet platforms—including iOS, Windows Phone, Android and HTML5—has now been syndicated to Deutsche Telekom’s developer web site, http://www.developergarden.com. Additionally, Telekom’s APIs and partner listings will be added to Developer Garden and syndicated across Verious.com and the Verious Mobile App Developer Network, a network of popular sites and newsletters reaching over 1 million mobile app developers on a monthly basis. Based in Silicon Valley with a worldwide audience, Verious is the leader in connecting developers with components and services for mobile app development.
Mobile apps have created a $6B+ industry in just 5 years. Research firm Gartner Group predicts that by 2015, mobile app projects will outnumber PC app projects four to one. Given that most of the 17 million developers worldwide are migrating from Web-related initiatives to mobile apps, many of them are looking for answers on how best to both streamline and monetize their efforts. Enterprise developers are similarly searching for ways to leverage mobile apps for their businesses.
The value proposition of the new Developer Garden Component Marketplace powered by Verious is simple. App code from experienced developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) is made available to a wide range of app developers worldwide:
- You’ve developed a great user registration process for your app that other developers can leverage? Now, you can sell it as a component!
- Your app needs an elegant visualized weather forecast, but you’re short on time and resources to code it? Now, you can find one and integrate it with just a few lines of code.
- You’d like to be inspired on the best ways to integrate payments into your app? Now, you can learn from top developers’ source code.
The Developer Garden Component Marketplace is a powerful extension of Deutsche Telekom’s existing Developer Garden offering which enables developers to leverage core Telekom assets such as network, billing, reach and customer relationships to create new kinds of powerful apps. Pre-built mobile app components will further help developers in their app development and monetization efforts.

Hey! T-Mobile! I work for them!
Seriously though, I hope this encourages us to increase our catalog of Windows Phone devices. Just having the Nokia Lumia 710 and HTC Radar doesn't help us push the OS when the rest are android. And the recent inclusion of the Galaxy SIII harms those even worse. People like large screens, the 710 and Radar are lacking in that. If we carried a 4.5" AMOLED bar Windows Phone I guarantee it would sell like hot cakes. Metro just looks so much better on AMOLED. Something else that would help is if they supported WiFi calling. That is a huge unit pusher as odd as it may seem.
If TMO doesn't start carrying some good phones, I'll retire my HD7 and move to my only other choice. Contract is up in Nov.
They will and you'll also be able to buy any GSM phone when the refarm is complete
