that this is a Windows Mobile application, especially because most of these
applications are available for Windows Mobile smartphones anyway, but
Microsoft's Unlimited Potential Group just announced a new mobile software
application for feature phones called "OneApp". OneApp will make it possible for
feature phone users around the world (and especially in emerging markets) to
access mobile apps like Facebook, Twitter, Windows Live Messenger and others.
OneApp was designed to make is easy for feature phones with limited memory and
processor to have access to the most popular web services and applications.
- The OneApp lightweight on-phone footprint of just 150 KB makes the
initial installation easy and fast.
- OneApp dynamically launches just the parts of a mobile app that a person
wants to use, eliminating additional installation time and the need for a
person to store all of the mobile apps on the phone.
- OneApp includes cloud services that help offload processing and storage
from the phone to the Internet, improving overall performance.
- OneApp uses data networks efficiently to reduce data access charges,
saving money for the customer.
Microsoft OneApp will be offered initially through partners in emerging markets
worldwide. At the moment, Microsoft OneApp supports a wide range Nokia, Samsung
and Sony Ericsson feature phones.
