AOL announced its Open Mobile Platform today with availability slated for this summer. The platform is intended to provide developers with access to the tools and code they need to build applications across all major mobile devices and operating systems.

The new platform will have three components including an XML-based markup language, mobile device client, and an application server. Using the platform developers will be able to integrate applications with third party APIs and AOL open APIs like AIM, AOL Mail, AOL Video, MapQuest, Userplane, Truveo, Winamp and more.

"The use of mobile services continues to increase at a steady rate and for any developer looking to build applications for this growing space, the AOL Open Mobile Platform couldn't make it any easier," said Steve Murphy, Senior Vice President of AOL. "Our new open platform will provide developers with a new breed of tools, including source code, for creating robust mobile services and will encourage product innovation."
