Today at the JavaOne conference, Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam announced that the company is making a strategic shift and will begin to deploy Java Platform Micro Edition-based services in its network and offer Java-based services and applications to its subscribers. In July, Verizon Wireless will hold an open development conference. It will also open up its network to allow developers to access network-based information that can be used by end-user applications, such as presence information. Verizon Wireless will offer both BREW and Java services side-by-side.

Opera Mini

As long as it's covered under existing VCast packages, sweet. If not...damnit, it should be. Laughing
Are you telling me you can't download Opera Mini on a Verizon handset? Yikes, tough life.
what's up coz? Geeez, VZW is looking good. A very nice upcoming portfolio with new phones, LTE, j2me, etc. WOW!

very interesting... it look like they're about to abandon their brew platform; they probably just realize that brew doesn't really have a growth potential like java.
Having developed on both, I can say that BREW is way faster than J2ME. BREW lacks the tools to make application development easy though.
