I was thinking of developping a prototype of "graphics over sms" using svg-simplified type.
or paintbrush inside email as image.
- First problem I bumped was that net.rim.ui.components/containers/Screen does not have a getImage()
even the BitmapField class???!!! EncodedImage 's GetBitmap not useful for this case.
- Now the workaround for that was to make a bitmap model which would take aprx 0.5MB Ram space.
or a sparce matrix algorithm which would take jiffies.
- The first part "psuedo-vector graphics over SMS", I have come up with an idea of converting the image or drawing into "unicode graphics symbols" then sending it as text message lines. Similar to pre computer graphics times' Mainframe terminals' printing portraits using charachters, but modern day type, using some edge/shape-detector algorithms.
- I am asking your opinion to see if any of these two ideas can have any commercial potential? at all?

This should be moved to the Java Development board.
