Microsoft today announced a new software platform designed to run on feature phones. OneApp is a Java app that, in turn, can run mini-apps written in XML+JavaScript. The initial version includes mini-apps for Facebook, Twitter, Windows Live Messenger, plus generic apps for news, stocks, sports, weather, and RSS. OneApp is designed to run on most feature phones with Java, using only 150 KB of memory, and uses cloud services to optimize for slower networks. Although it is a standard Java app, it is designed to be customized and deployed by carriers; components will vary by carrier. Microsoft plans to offer a software development kit for third-party developers by the end of 2009.

A platform... or a piece of middleware

Using Java to create a platform for javascript/xml for carriers. Sounds like BREW/GIN ontop of Java.
