I got a different idea when I visited a FirstTuesday meeting in Barcelona
sponsored by Ericsson. They (Ericsson) presented their Symbian/EPOC
development environment for their next generation phones
(http://www.ericsson.com/developerszone/), which is supposed to include
a simulator and debugging tools. One of the most interesting tools was a
bandwidth profiling tool for the simulator.
So they definitely try to foster application (game) programming for their
mobile phones. And yes, imagine 50% of all mobile phones to include
PalmOS. Just find the "killer game" ...
