Web Services Coming to Cell Phone?

August 1st, 2005

The J2ME Web Services API (JSR 172) was first introduced almost two years ago, now it seems that JSR 172 has finally gained some traction.

In the past June, Sony Ericsson announed two phones (Sony Ericsson W600 Walkman and S600 mobile phones) that would support JSR 172 (J2ME Web Services API 1.0).

Although themobileblog.com hasn’t heard of or seen any applications being developed based on J2ME Web Services API, the availability of JSR172 could mean a proliferation of new service for both consumer and mobile enterprise markets. However, given the overhead of XML based web services and generally low speed of wireless wide area network, a true wide spread adoption could still be years away.
