AT&T Foundry Centers To Help Mobile App Developers

Execs heard 170 pitches in 2010 and expect to hear 400 this year. Those accepted can either work autonomously via a web portal, use call-in telephone collaboration and support, or have full on-site access to the super high-speed LTE-based networks, labs, and test centers.
