Tag, you're Java ME technology-enabled it!

Microsoft sees the beauty of writing apps in Java ME programming language. They offer their new Microsoft Tag app on all the major phone platforms, including the most major of them all: the Java ME platform. Thought I was going to say Android, didn't you? Fat chance!

This is a cool app that lets you create a 2D image badge that becomes a shortcut to a long URL, so that you can just use your cell phone camera to upload it to your phone and jump to it in your browser, instead of typing it all in on that teeny phone keypad.

Tag, Microsoft uses Java ME

Here's a quote:

 It’s a free application in beta 
 for Windows Mobile, J2ME, Symbian 
 S60, BlackBerry and iPhone.
Yeah, yeah, Microsoft wrote their app for their WinMobile platform, Symbian, and iPhone too. But, so they wasted a lot of time for not much return. As Bobby Brown says, it's their prerogative.
