Talk:Identifying the Nokia platform in Java ME
Hamishwillee - Updated categories
Nice article again. I've updated the category to Category:System Information on Java ME which is more useful for this sort of information. Can you check there that there is no duplication - for example with How to get KeyCode , Screen Size & Device platform in Java ME ?, Archived:Identifying Java ME platform version. If there is, then we should merge the articles, if not, congratulations on finding a great topic not covered.
If this is not duplication, then probably best to update the topic title. IMO this is actually identifying the keyboard type or more correctly "Interface type" (keypad, keyboard, "touch"), not the platform type. (Nokia Asha, Series 40).

Hi Hamishwillee,Sorry for the late answer. I'm doing my military service here in Greece and I'm at home only occasionally. Here is what is the idea behind my recent articles. We had a conversation in a New Asha webinar about how to identify the platform and how to write code for multiple platforms. Because I do those things in my applications I wanted to open source some code to show the way I use to deal with them. Because I found some time and because Nokia Projects are shutting down I decided to create some articles. So, instead of creating a huge article I though to split the useful components and offer them as black box snippets that a developer can use. Yes, in this article for example, the "com.nokia.keyboard.type" property can be found in other articles, but what I want is to create a puzzle, where articles will reference each other, and this article is a piece of it.

Hamishwillee - That's fine
No worries regarding your "late" reply - you're a volunteer and whenever you can contribute is much appreciated.
Your overall goal is worthy and I like the approach - small and focussed articles. With respect to duplication, this reason is OK only if the other articles don't do what you need or can't be made to do what you need - if you've checked that then fine! What I would do though is still rename as I suggested to make it clear what it covers, and normally I'd link to similar articles using a Template:SeeAlso
Thanks again, looking forward to seeing how these articles all turn out.
