What kind of OS is used for the Nokia 3310 3G?
based on JAVA. No longer Nokia S30 series
Will there be any "app store" where I can get other apps?
I also would like to understand something more about this new Java based OS (I'm an HW man not a SW man so hope some programmer or so can answer to the question):
I've read that there already are two clients to run Facebook and Twitter on this 3310 3G, so why is generally said that will be impossible to write a client to run WhatsApp?
I mean, is there any real reason for which is impossible to run WhatsApp on a Java based OS (as it was for Symbian after all)? And, is it true that is surely impossible to create that client?
I'm sorry if the question could sound stupid but as I've said before I'm not an expert about programming at all.
Tnx if someone will answer to my question.
It would be a huge advantage for the device if there was a WhatsApp app.
From my point of view, this would be ideal for people who like to have a "real" phone keyboard, appreciate the size and operation of feature phones and still communicate via smartphone apps like WhatsApp or Facebook.
It would be really nice that Nokia or HMD can reveal some information related with developing apps on it. I recently (mistakenly) tried to set up a S30+ development environment using MRE SDK, hoping to run .vxp, which is used to be native application format for S30/+ platform but did not aware that the 3310 is running a quite different OS on it. But such native application support will be more ideal for clients like Whatsapp.
