Cross posting to reach a larger audience.
We've gotten word from the Global Development group that a lot of our
partners are asking for an official Symbian S40 J2ME app for
Wikipedia. Before talking to any potential development houses I wanted
to reach out to both of these lists to see if anyone has a lead on any
open source developers who would want to contract for a project like
this and/or volunteer with us.
The feature set would be fairly basic including but not limited to
* Reading articles
* Interwiki links
Now developing for J2ME is a beast unto itself as Derk-Jan
points out but
the potential install base of these phones is still fairly large
making it a good strategic goal. We'd love to do this in PhoneGap but
its support starts at S60 and not S40.
I see two Symbian based apps here
but their both just for offline reading
Curious to hear peoples thought/experiences.
