Our Mobile Device Lab program has been a quiet success here at Droplabs, and we're finally ready to take the show on the road with our first Mobile Device Lab meetup of 2014!

This time we're partnering with our friends at the Intel Experience Store and are meeting at 5pm on January 9th at their location at 1421 Abbot Kinney Blvd., in Venice, California. Attendees will have free access to a range of devices with Intel Inside® for their mobile app and mobile website development and testing.

About Mobile Device Lab

Are you a developer or designer of a mobile website or native app, but don't have access to the tablets, smartphones and other devices you need for cross-device and cross-platform testing and development? Now you do.

This program, developed at Droplabs in Downtown Los Angeles, is designed to accommodate the needs of freelancers, independent contractors, remote workers and and indie developers. All equipment is available to use free of charge.

What to Bring

During this scheduled Mobile Device Lab meetup, you're encouraged to bring your devices to share with other attendees. When the meetup is over, just take your devices home with you. These "crowdtesting" events make it possible for everyone to get the most out of their time.

Our goal is to be the premier mobile device testing lab in the Los Angeles area and any forthcoming help from LabUp and Open Device Lab can only get us so far. If you'd like to lend or donate any used iOS, Android, BlackBerry or Windows Phone devices for use in this program, please contact us.
