Go! Java

NewsGator Go!

For some time the NewsGator mobile team has been working with the great folks from Free Range Communications to build a mobile RSS reader that targets J2ME devices. This has been a very challenging task given the number and diversity of J2ME devices and the complexity in building a robust and scalable mobile RSS reader. Today, I am psyched to announce the public beta of the product.

If you have a Java enabled device and would like to kick the tires, point your browser at

http://www.newsgator.com/NGOLMobileJ2MEBeta.aspx and grab the latest build. You will need to have a NewsGator account to play, and you can do that here and it is FREE.

Many of today’s mobile devices support Java applications, and we see NewsGator Go! for J2ME as an excellent extension of our product suite. NewsGator Go! is a great way to consume your news and information while you are on the move – at any time and at any place. That is very cool and very compelling.
So, please take a look at NewsGator Go! for J2ME and let us know what you think. You can send all feedback to the NewsGator forum.

Here is a list of known supported devices an updated list of supported cell phones (the original list was not correct), but if your device is not on the list, please still feel free to give Go! a try and let us know how it behaves:

  • Blackberry (version 4.0 and up)
  • Sony Ericsson phones
  • Non-Motorola MID-P 2.0 phones
  • - Currently selling Nokia (and most within the last year (just not
  • MIDP 1.0 phones)
  • - All others MID-P 2.0 phones (Samsung, Sanyo, LG, etc)

Oh, if you have a Windows Mobile device, the preferred option is to use NewsGator Go! for Windows Mobile.
Thanks for taking a look and most of all I hope you enjoy the mobile RSS experience!

    I like it a lot… surprisingly fast, too! Nice job :) I used it on my Cingular 8125 (HTC Wizard).
