This documentation is focused on the Java ME based development for Nokia Asha software platform. It is also possible to develop web apps for Nokia Asha with the Nokia Web Tools, as well as the Nokia App Wizard. Visit the Web Developer's Library to get started with web apps development.
This chapter summarises all the essential information to get a basic idea of what it takes to port an Android application to the new Nokia Asha or the preceding Series 40 platforms, and gives an overview of the things to take into consideration beforehand.
The sections in this chapter will go through the general differences of the two platforms, in terms of hardware, software, and UX design, and finally present useful code snippets demonstrating how some common tasks look on both Android and Nokia Asha.
