A news flash system for mobile devices using J2ME

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

An application (termed NewsFlash) that delivers important news articles to mobile device users is currently under development using Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME). The application is considered ubiquitous as it runs on many different Java enabled mobile devices while on the move. The news items are delivered according to the user preferences. The system uses the GPRS/MMS mobile technology rather than the old SMS which was found to be a nuisance to some users of already available similar systems. NewsFlash consists of a web service, wireless connectivity and a range of information devices. In this paper, the critical parts of such system and the way the NewsFlash application was developed will be elaborated.
