Development platforms on mobile devices
July 3, 2006
The Mobile Experience Blog has some great statistics that Anders Lindh has put together on the types of development platforms currently deployed on mobile devices.
Lindh has grouped these platforms together as "they share the capability of enabling third-party content and/or applications".
The largest deployed world wide is of course Java, but as Lindh notes, there is no break down of Java’s MIDP 1.x & 2.x platforms that he could locate do they are both lumped together.
Amazingly Flash Lite takes up the second position in deployed numbers. Definitely something to be looking into if you are developing applications for mobile.
