infoSync World : Send free SMS with J2ME phones. SMSSend 2.0 is a J2ME app which allows users to bypass the operators for sending SMS by virtue of using ICQ's SMS sending service instead. The operators must just hate the growing power of the handsets which is surely going to thwart many of their revenue streams. How long will users spend a small ranson on regular MMS, for instance, before they realise they can get the same effect through the email function for a fraction of the cost?

BlogPlanet Rules: J2ME Blogging MIDlet for 3650s

BlogPlanet is a new Java-based moblogging app that came out a week or so ago... What a kick ass little MIDlet! Jim sent this over to me yesterday and I just had a chance to play with it right now and it's just a well-done, clean app. Here's the features from their site:

    • Create, edit and delete posts

    • A user dictionary which lets you add shortcuts for frequently used words and phrases

    • Take pictures with the built-in camera

    • Easily include the pictures in your posts, without having to enter HTML code

    • Supports the BloggerAPI and MetaWeblogAPI for compatibility with a vast number of blog sites

    • English, German and Spanish language support


Russell goes on at length to expound upon the virtues of this nifty new software. It seems that the prospect of doing some serious moblogging is becoming more and more real everyday.
