What the major news outlets failed to highlight yesterday in Nokia’s news to consolidate on QT for both Symbian and MeeGo is that Nokia sells a large majority share of MIDP JavaME devices deployed worldwide. And usually consolidation moves like this ripple through the Mobile OEMs.
True, not many other OEMs have something like the QT strategy in-house. But you have to wonder when the next market leader in deployed MIDP JavaME devices will consolidate and drop JavaME. I wonder how Oracle will spin this?
