They can deploy to Android, Java ME, Windows Mobile and Blackberry. They started on a Symbian port but later decided to put their (limited) time on the other ports. Their first reference implementation is a Location Based Social Network called NavXS. There’s a short movie on YouTube explaining the framework.

Previously, I was of the opinion that there’s no money in writing tools – especially mobile tools. Just look at Borland and AppForge. However, with the new trend of higher level cross-development tools I think there are now opportunities in this space.
