Hi guys! I need your opinion on this, I'm currently looking for thesis topics. And a bluetooth application popped into my mind. I want to create a application that runs on a windows desktop, sends data to a Nokia 6600 via bluetooth, an application(midlet) saved into the 6600 will read the data and that data file will be the save physically in to the phone's MMC or wherever the phone will store it.Do you think that's feasible? I'm just starting reading about Midlets, JSRs, Nokia Dev Suite docu. I just want to ask your opinion on this so, I won't be wasting my time.

Do not think you can do that. The Java runtime on 6600 does not have access to the local file system (the MMC card).

I think you can try the native Symbian C++. It is a pain. I know ...

Hey Michael, do you know of any JSRs that are geared towards APIs to access the Memory Card, for saving data?

I think JSR 75 (the File I/O API) will enable that. It has been in the JCP for more than 3-4 years and the final spec has just came out. I think future Nokia series 60 devices will implement it.

Michael,

How would we know if a certain cellphone model is programmable or can be installed by software?
