Exactly. If the application is aimed at the mass market / normal
people, then go for what most phones have. java (j2me)
If the application is aimed at techies then go for something that more
techies are likely to have - possibly S60/90/python, and then you can
leverage some increased technology but sacrifice numbers of users....
Just have a look at existing mobile phone software and see what they
offer, the commercial efforts extend out with multiple formats to
cover as many phones as possible, but they all seem to support j2me.
