Much work has gone into the code base over the last year. phoneME Feature MR3 builds on phoneME Feature MR2 by adding new capabilities as outlined in the feature list below.

phoneme support for jsr172

Does phoneME support jsr172? its been mentioned on top saying Ongoing support

very nice, is it possible to install phoneME Feature MR3 on a Nokia N810? >Closer Integration with Sun Java Wireless Toolkit (WTK) Will it also in the future be possible to install WTK on a Mac? Regards, Ove

Ove, as you may notice from some make files in phoneME Feature repository we do have a MAC port as some of us of course have Macbooks :). Unfortunately we are not able to place it in open so far. But as we are truly committed to open source we are trying to go through all the legal processes to make it happen. Regards Kostya


phoneME Feature doesn't support the N800-series. For that, please check out phoneME Advanced. As for Mac support I can't promise anything but the WTK is being rearchitected with portability in mind so it's a possibility.
