Other Programming Solutions for Mobile Game Development

I know the most popular programming language for mobile game development is Java.
But what other languages can be used? And what are their advantages?

C/C++ can be used for most devices (CodeWarrior makes a portable system cross-compiler version of their IDE with plug-ins for ARM and other architectures). There are also OpenSource C/C++ "solutions" at various stages of completion (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mobilecore for an example called MobileCore).

Hope this helps,

Generally, you will have to decide between Java and C++.
There are several target platforms / APIs / runtime environments that support the mobile (game) developer.


J2ME MIDP (Java 2 Micro Edition), the core classes implemented by most mobile devices
http://java.sun.com/j2me

Exen by In-Fusio, virtual machine and SDK dedicated to mobile gaming
http://developer.in-fusio.com/information_technology.php

SDK for the WGE platform

The mophun platform

The BREW platform

Dear Ks8,

Mobile Platform is the hottest platform today and two OS other than mighty Ms rules the roost. Visit the following Web sites to know more:

www.symbian.com
Symbian OS is used in more and more Cellphones and PDAs. The UIQ SDK is easy to understand and also has a lot of samples.
www.symbianos.org has a lot of example codes.

Likewise
www.qualcomm.com/brew
This too is slowly making waves.
