Raspberry Pi with Java, a great combo

Here's a cool new embedded $35 Linux/ARM computer called the Raspberry Pi. Now, what's better with Raspberry Pi than Java? Java ME CDC that is, downloaded when you get the OJEC 1.1 Linux/ARM binary free from: here and have it with your Raspberry Pi.

See:

Here's a quote:

 [T]he Raspberry Pi Model B has 
 officially begun production. Unlike 
 the Model A, this $35 computer 
 board features both an Ethernet 
 adapter and 256MB of RAM (rather 
 than 128MB).
A delicious combo!

Everyone taking potshots at Android, pointing out Java ME tech's awesome awesomeness

Now, you know there must be some type of bandwagon that tech bloggers are jumping on, if this is the third article pointing out that Java ME technology has overtaken Android. I don't even know who this guy is... but I like how he thinks! :-)

See:

Ronald O Carlson points out Java ME is awesome

Here's a quote:

 Emblematic of Android users’ gosh 
 darned pathetic stats is the fact 
 that for the second month in a row 
 devices running Java ME — the dumb 
 phone operating system — generate 
 more web traffic.
Maybe the "dumb phone operating system" isn't that dumb after all... Ya think?

Second position in mobile OS? Not Android!

Here's an article about how "Java ME enjoys the second position in mobile OS, not Android". Hey, I've been pointing that out all this time...
 Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
 I mean one that you don't really know
 Ridin' around town in a drop-top Benz
 Hittin' switches on my Java ME feature phone

See:

Damn it feels good to be a gangsta

Here's a quote:

 Google’s Android, which spread 
 like wildfire last year has been 
 losing its fizz, while the surprise 
 is Oracle’s Java ME, which is 
 emerging as the world’s fastest 
 growing mobile operating system...
And, for the haters who say the survey data is flawed, why does the trend over time show Java ME is growing and Android is declining. Trends don't lie, even if the data is focused only on mobile browsing, not units shipped. The relative trend line is showing that Android is "losing its fizz" (a quote from the article, not me) :-)

It's going to be a great 2012! (Unless you're an Android fan, that is. :-) )
