SEOUL, South Korea — Feb. 15, 2012 — Wind River, a world leader in embedded and mobile software, announced that Pantech, a leading mobile device manufacturer, is using Wind River’s Android testing software in the development of its Android-based smartphones.
By using Wind River’s automated testing software, Wind River Framework for Automated Software Testing (FAST) and Wind River UX Test Development Kit, Pantech dramatically reduced the time and costs to test the software for their Android devices. Pantech was able to automate heterogeneous tests and testing reports.
