DermaMan : Dermatology Tools for your java enabled mobile.

What is DermaMan?
Mobiles have become part of everyday life and most of these devices support java. In technical terms DermaMan is a suite of java MIDlets developed using J2ME complying with the CDLC 1.1 specifications. I am sure majority of the prospective users of DermaMan may not be interested in the technical specifications. So in simple terms DermaMan is a java application for your new generation mobiles.

What is the future of DermaMan?
I am sure you agree that the mobile technology is here to stay and the processing power as well as connectivity is going to improve tremendously with time. My ultimate aim is to make a mobile front end to a self learning diagnostic application similar to my Virtual Dermatologist.
