While the iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android get most of the attention in the mobile application space, most cell phone subscribers around the world use entry-level devices or feature phones. 

With that in mind, Microsoft introduced Monday the OneApp platform with the goal of enabling mobile apps to be accessed by handsets with limited processing power and memory. Primarily targeted at emerging markets, OneApp will allow users of various phones to download versions of Facebook, Twitter, and other programs without using much bandwidth. 

Redmond intends to start offering a OneApp software developer kit before the end of this year. Programs for OneApp can be written using common tools like JavaScript and XML. The OneApp platform itself will be launched in more countries sometime in 2010.
