Microsoft just released “Windows Live for mobile“, and as far as I know, it’s the first time that Microsft release a J2me Application! (but don’t worry, there is a Windows Mobile app too)
Windows logo on J2me device!
So support for J2me seems quite limited (see my full report on the mobile mapping blog), but it’s rare enough to be noticed.
- not yet as polished as Google map
- Still some porting issue (menu keys)
- map download (when working) is quite fast and works well
- some good and interesting UI ideaes….
As expected, the long term war will be one services, and not applications…The underlying language/OS is not very relevant, and I expect to see more Microsoft application on J2me, or in other platforms (Flash, Symbian, etc…).
This is Mobile2.0!
