In January, Intel announced that it was creating an app store that would feature application development tools and that it would be giving away cash payments to those who posted their apps. So far, the “AppUp Center” features 200 apps.
According to Developer World, Intel is in talks about adding Adobe Air and Microsoft Silverlight to its store, but it can’t even find anyone to talk to about Java. “It’s been a little bit of a problem since Oracle acquired Sun,” said Intel’s Don Harbert. “Sun didn’t want to make any new deals once they were acquired by Oracle, and now we don’t know who to talk to at Oracle.”
