Things that iPhone can do that Java ME technology can't

OK. I just found out something that the Apple Inc. iPhone can do that a Java ME technology-enabled cell phone can't do... yet. In a presentation today at the OSiM 2008 conference, Fabrizio Capobianco (CEO of Funambol) mentioned the iFartz application for the iPhone. There's no Java ME equivalent (that I know of). Too bad...

See:

iFartz for the iPhone

Can someone port this to Java ME please? Do you think it requires NetBeans? :-)

Comments:

This is what I hear when I use NetBeans:-)
so it can be done in Java...

Should be straightforward enough to port/recreate this one using JSR 256, although dunno any phones that support it.

A Symbian S60 port for something like the N95 should be doable though!

Check Cippi for J2ME phones - a much better fart application. Even has a timer so you can launch sneak attacks.

@Dave - the Sony Ericsson w910i and k850i both offer accelerometer support via JSR256. iFartz would be a piece of cake to write for them as it only makes the farting noise when the phone is flipped over. Guess it should be called meFartz though.

Oh... my... God... :-) Cippi, I think you have either the most ingenious use of Java ME or the most twisted. ;-)

The Farting Chipmunk MIDlet. Excellent! :-)
