    Develop Application.

    How can I develop an application that will work on s40/s60/s80 devices, and other devices? (LG,Motorola etc.)

    Hi salt and pepper,

    I think there's no "silver bullet" or "magic formula". You can minimize changes and tweaks by avoiding specific APIs and following best practices and design guidelines but you'll have to cope with a lot of issues, e.g, different screen sizes.

    You should follow the JME specs but note that this is not going to guarantee everything because there are a lot of implementation specific behaviors, mainly in the "gaps" or areas where the specs are not so clear or precise...

    I attended the Forum Nokia Tech Days Brazil event last week and one (Forum Nokia PRO) company presented an approach that's interesting. They start developing for Nokia S60 at first, then adapt for Nokia Series 40 (if needed) and finally they adjust for other vendors/manufactures platforms/devices. Sounds interesting!

    But beware that nothing will replace testing on real devices, ok?

    I hope it helps...
