at the moment I am investigating which mobile plattform could deliver all three aspects we are looking for:
first: wide spread (overall market share)
second: feature rich
third: not completely security-barricaded
As far as I can see Nokia isn't supporting Java Micro Edition as strong as it was two years ago.
Nokia isn't supporting JavaFX:
And if you are looking into the Java-Technology-FAQ-pdf here on Forum Nokia(last changes June 2008) on the last pages, there is a roadmap mentioned which is very unmotivated:
Symbian Foundation don't seem to support Java ME that strong:Currently, Nokia is making no commitments regarding the commercial availability of these Java technologies, although Nokia has confirmed that the Mobile Service Architecture (MSA) (JSR-248) full set is on the roadmap for a future release of the S60 platform.
As far as I can see
- JME on S40 don't get further additions
- JME on S60 don't get further additions
Is there a roadmap for the next version of Symbian Series 40 OS, I can't find any informations on S40 7th edition.
Here is the roadmap for the Symbian Foundation:
If we segment the phone market in High-End - Feature-Phone - Low-End
At the moment IMO S60 adresses high end and a small piece of the feature phone market, S40 adresses low end and the bigger piece of the feature phone market. Is there a shift starting with the "Symbian-Foundation-OS"?
Am I right with this assumption?
Symbian-Foundation-OS will be addressing High-End and Feature-Phones.
S40 will be Low-End-Phones-Only.
