Google’s acquisition of reqwireless – can you understand the rationale?
It seems like a J2ME browser – technically very good from the reviews but nothing special. Maybe it’s really for the engineers! No wonder the Canadians are happy!
Acccording to palowireless
Reqwireless WebViewer is a Web browser for J2ME MIDP devices.
WebViewer supports HTML along with GIF and JPEG images, providing users of mobile Java devices with access to the real Web. WebViewer is not a WAP browser. WebViewer is just 48K as a JAR file and is built upon ReqwirelessWeb, our class library for fetching and rendering HTML. WebViewer supports the following features:
* HTML, including forms and image maps
* GIF, JPEG, PNG, and BMP images
* HTTP, FTP, and gopher resources
* HTTP cookies
* HTTP Basic authentication
* HTTPS (if supported by the device)
seems pretty much standard to me. what am I missing?
