According to c/net and JavaWorld.com, Evans Data reports that only 500 developers use Qualcomm's BREW platform, while Sun estimates that 200,000 developers work with J2ME.



I have not doubt that some of Qualcomm's woes come from this, and may have impacted the acceptance and sales of their cell phones in the market place. Perhaps, it's time to consider the adoption of J2ME where there are many more developers, solutions, and application implementations including productivity tools and games for its cell phone users. Just a thought.
