JavaOne: Verizon, Home of Brew… and Java!

June 3rd, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: J2me | No Comments »

Verizon Verizon's strategy has always been to provide hardware and services based on Qualcomm's Brew platform (as much as possible). During JavaOne, the company has announced that it will also start supporting Java.

Verizon will start to promote content and services based on Java's J2me platform. This means there is still not much ground for Sun's JavaFX. Verizon is also expected to open up an App Store like environment.

To support developers, Verizon will make available API's that allow developers to read out all sorts of information about the consumer that is owning the device used. This includes roaming and billing data. The API's will be made available on June 28th.
