JME, a survival?

All the people seem crazy about iPhone SDK and Google Android these days.
Do you think JME is still important in the mobile application development market?

Well, not everyone is ga-ga over the iPhone, and Android isn't available on any mass-market products yet. So there's still some life to be found in JME, I think.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

Lets say Google Android became popular, do you think that JME is in jeopardy?

There are millions or according to some more than billion phones that support JME and that number is growing every day and will grow in many years to come�

iPhone is cool because it is iPhone and has good marketing but it is an average phone with only 2 mpx camera, no MMS, no Java support, no Flash Lite support� to capture vide one has to buy software� and in many countries it is not cheap so I don�t think that it will be sold in 400 or 500 million examples like Nokia phones or 100 million like Sony Ericsson and yes they support JME. Plus Motorola, Samsung� Maybe 10 or 20 millions a year.

Android is cool and if it becomes popular I don�t think that Android phones will �kill� other phones that support JME. Many JME phones are cool and good and probably will be cheaper than many Android phones�
I agree. Here's the link:
