I am planning to create an XML based Twitter client for the SEN (Siemens Enterprise) Openstage 60/80 phones using a web application framework called Perl Catalyst. The main idea is that the user should be able to display her timeline, mentions, and direct messages directly on the phone. As entering text using the phone keys would be too awkward in my opinion there are no plans to implement a possibility to send tweets using the application at the moment.
Because of the limitations the Openstage’s software imposes, users will have to create an account for the application using a web interface and connect it to twitter using OAuth. From then on they can log into the application using the phone and will get a periodically updated view of their information using three tabs.
Using this example I want to show that it is possible to implement Openstage XML applications using of-the-shelf web frameworks and that there are alternatives to using Java as backend technology.
