Bitstream unveiled BOLT SDK, a suite of technology and tools that enable mobile app developers to build feature rich Java ME applications for feature phones.
BOLT‘s WebKit-based HTML5 engine will make sure pretty much any web content will work on basic feature phones, potentially opening a floodgate for new Java apps.
Bitstream goes on suggesting that thanks to the data compression inherent in the BOLT cloud computing architecture, Java ME apps have an advantage over smartphone apps in both speed of web content as well as data consumption. I’m not sure about that “advantage part” but what do I know.
The BOLT SDK is completely customizable and depending on the required application capabilities, can be configured in terms of package size and memory usage.
And if you’re wondering where you can see and download the BOLT SDK, the answer is – CTIA. The company is currently demonstrating the technology in Orlando and I guess it will be released to the general public (developers) in no time.
