i am using nokia 5233 , s60 based phone. java integration should be raised to beat android. I hope s60 has fulfilled my expectations.i am expecting more from nokia very soon.

I'm sad to see how Java is going this days.
Blackberry is abandoning Java for QNX (it will support it for some time but who knows), Nokia is abandoning Java and make symbian die,
google is cheating oracle with a "modded" java version...
Oracle makes many words a too few facts, where is JavaME.next?
but this is true but not in rich country imho. (the one that make us eat by selling software)
Grandmothers are buying cheap android phones because it has big numerical keyboard.
You know, I love JavaME and I don't like google also if is feeding me but S40 is completely faded out here in europe. I think the same in america.
S40 is the answer for the third world now and I'm not too much sure that it will be true for a long time.
It is also true that people who buy S40 now buy it because it need a cheap phone to make a call or send an SMS, not a phone to load apps in. Target is completely different, personally I don't sell a license on S40 since more than 6 months on hundred of licenses sold every months.
Personally I think that with S40 you can do magicians but people don't want to hear anything else than Android and iPhone o_O
Once Nokia is back as the world leader in mobile phones.... the new more powerful S40's by then will also get back to main stream making our reach to millions.
Be Optimistic ! :-)
Don't try to sell Licences, try out ad powered free web apps !
our software is too "business focused" to make free ad apps, we sell the 85% of the downloaded trial, free ads not work in this scenario.
I like your optimistic thinking :-)
generally I see the half empty glass instead of the half full glass but its nice to see some optimistic reasoning so ok I will be optimistic.
I don't know how representative my opinion is, I'm just one person, but I am European and if I can get a handset with this level of functionality unlocked for EUR 115 I'll be very happy indeed.
I also understand the reason Q3 2011 was not as catastrophic as Q2 2011 for NOKIA was because Series 40 performed well.
Yes there is a new tool for java... but only for S40...
And for S60 (5ed, Symbian^3, Anna, Belle) ?
I don't understand Java on S40 as long as no new UI library will be available... May I develop with LCDUI ? I don't know the Nokia UI api so what can we do with this ? Why not eSWT as for S60 ?
Another thing that concerns me is that Nokia says that Qt is the development platform for the next billion. There are rumors that Nokia is readying a linux based OS to replace S40. If so what is the future of J2me. Just develop for legacy devices ? Or both Qt and J2me will be supported ?
JavaME is actually dead, Sun/Oracle made it diing by creating no improvements in such years.
Hi, I don't know if we can say that J2ME is dead... The java version language is old (not the improvements of Java 5) but the libraries exist (location, game api, media api)...The major problem for me is the UI... I can't today use the lcdui which is completely obsolete... And nobody say me what is it possible with the Nokia UI ? The eSWT is not the best ui but it is good (but there is no xml description of the UI like android or XAML) except the fact that I have seen some bugs (or perhaps a mistake of me) with the kinetic scroll and that eSWT runs differently following 3Ed, 5Ed, Symbian^3 and Anna...
I have never seen J2ME on linux but perhaps...
