What Erlang emulator do you mean?

Another VM. ;)

What I just read about minimum requirements on

  http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/1,35452,1_0_37,00.html

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q11. What are the minimum hardware requirements in the MIDP environment?
Display:

Screen size: 96 x 54
Display depth: 1-bit
Pixel shape: 1:1

Input:

One or more of the following: "one-handed keyboard", "two-

handed keyboard"(QWERTY), touch screen

Memory:

128 kB of non-volatile memory for MIDP components
8 kB of non-volatile memory for application-created persistent
data
32 kB volatile memory for Java runtime

Networking:

Two-way, wireless, with limited bandwidth
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is not too exciting.

- 30kb maximum on midlet size (ok, that's byte code and quite compact).
- no bluetooth
- just http for communications
- no standard infrared port access
- no pixel access to display

I hope that information is outdated.

Regards,
Marc
