True That: Don't Ignore Good Ol' J2ME

Wise words in a guest post on PocketGamer from John Chasey. Here's an excerpt:

Java is no small island.

While there are many technical and logistical reasons why publishers and developers prefer the iPhone, the fact is that there has been a definite move away from J2ME development and releases.

Those companies that have chosen to continue supporting the older platform are therefore likely to see their market share and profits increase.

The flipside of this is that the stampede towards the iPhone by publishers and developers has outstripped the increase in installed base of Apple handsets.
