phoneME is an implementation of the phoneME open source Java ME application platform for Windows Mobile devices.
phoneME Advanced targets Windows Mobile devices with more resources (memory, cpu, storage) and can run CDC based applications that are compatible with a subset of the J2SE 1.4 stack. Other profiles like Foundation Profile and Personal Profile are also supported.
The CDC and Foundation profiles require little patching. While the Personal Basis Profile does not compile at all, the Personal Profile works reasonably well. phoneME Advanced also provides a dual stack implementation with MIDP support. It is based on the Foundation Profile and runs basic midlets pretty good, but as with phoneME Feature, JSR support is rather limited.
Default, native DPI and high resolution MIDP stacks
If you are using a device with a VGA resolution (or any other non-96 DPI display) the default builds will do a 96 DPI emulation out of the box. The emulation rescales all fonts and graphics as if your device would have a QVGA resolution. However, the 96 DPI emulation may cause blurry texts on 128 and 131 DPI devices because these dot densities are no multiples of 96 DPI. That is why there are a few alternatives which use the native dot density:
Native DPI: the native dpi build uses the native resolution of the device. This means the higher the DPI of the screen is, the smaller the fonts become. For a 192 DPI device, the fonts and graphics would appear as half the size when emulating 96 DPI. High Resolution: the high resolution build has all the built-in graphics and fonts resized to twice their original size. This build is recommended if you want to have a crisp text on a high DPI device.
