by Expand BeyondJan 01, 2008

The purpose of this white paper from Expand Beyond is to introduce the fundamentals of mobile software development as an orientation for the development community. It gives an overview of the different kinds of operating systems that are commonly in used mobile devices. The paper also examines the wide array of differing markup languages that these operating systems are capable of receiving and interpreting. It compares and contrasts the Java and Microsoft platforms for mobile development and it describes two third-party device-specific ""virtual machines"" that can greatly ease the complexity of mobile development.
