I've been playing around with J2ME for a while and really enjoy it - it's like the 'good' old days of small API coding.
Anyway I have a HTTP based networking Midlet that runs great over emulators, but my question is what are network connections like on real over the air mobile phones?
Do connections drop constantly?
What are the real bits per second figures like?
Are the costs to the customer of being online prohibitive? (I'm in the UK, but I wonder about USA & Far East too).
If you've had an live experience with networked J2ME computer I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
Thanks in advance,
