Has anyone tried out the java implementation on the sharp gx-10, this is the phone in the Vodaphone-live launch.

Just wondered how it performed compared to other similar devices (samsung sgh100, motorola t720).

Also, anyone found any specs on the java capabilities of the phone ?

does it have any vendor specific api's?

Actually hadn't heard anything about it. Got a link to their material?

I just read this story about the new Nokia phones.

"... N-Gage mobile game deck product and the Nokia 6800, optimized for text messaging."

They mention that Sega has games for N-Gage that coem on memory cards, but they don't mention that N-Gage has Java.   They DO mention that the 6800 has 'support for Java'.  The 6800 also has a full keyboard which is cool - makes it sound like a RIM Blackberry.

Actually that leads me in another direction..has anyone done any Java programming for a Blackberry?   It seems that it would be a reasonable sized market for J2ME stuff - and I'm sure there are a lot of people that would use it to play games during some really boring business meetings  Grin

Wow!  Now that is a phone built for games!

Actually I'm sure the interface could work well for organizer-type applications as well.

Have a look at sun - here you can get the Java2Microedition API and a development kit if you register for free there.

The API ist very small and you can't use the full power of java Sad But for some games it seems to be ok.

I still have no idea how to get the java applications to my mobile Huh Irda provides no possibility to upload something to the phone directly. Maybe I have to start my own wap-portal?

I got this phone and its brilliant.  I've written a couple of lame games by myself using suns wireless toolkit and j2me. Only bitch I have about it though is that for some reason sharp or vodafone or both limited the ir so that u can only use it for modem purposes.  This means that to deploy your games you need to upload them to a web server in jar / jad format and then download them again with the phone.  Of course the web server needs to be configured properly to support the correct mime types.  In the end I just downloaded apache and when ever I want to transfer a game I get my own web server going!   Angry

If you still cant do it Jan and you need help getting your games over email me and I'll help you out.  Its all just a matter of configuring the web server.

Oh yea I forgot to say.  Vodafone have a special developers library for the gx10 and the live servce.  It contains some 'native' apis for the phone which allow you to do a few more things than the standard j2me does. Go to to try and get one.
