Sprint today announced that it has adopted Openwave's Integra technology so that developers may write applications to run within the browsers of mobile phones. The Sprint Browser-VAS (value-added services) ecosystem will provide developers with the tools and support they need to create browser-based apps and services. Sprint believes that by targeting the browser for app development, it will help developers create apps that will run across different platforms and form factors. Developers can get the tools they need from Sprint's developer site. Sprint said it expects to launch a storefront for this new set of browser-based apps within the first half of 2011.

This week in "initiatives that won't go anywhere"

I don't know where to begin with this. First off, dumbphones already have a dumbed-down app platform. Adding another dumbed-down app platform isn't going to go anywhere. Especially starting on a carrier like Sprint, who seems slow to learn that their software initiatives always end up in disaster.
Opera mini as default browser and call it a day.
Sprint will get plenty of new subscribers as AT&T's already overloaded crappy GSM network drops more and more calls.

Opera Mini

Just make Opera Mini the default browser on all of your feature or dumb phones.
