    Does C++ support mobile programming?

    I know Java is usually the best way to go since each phone is made differently, setting a need for portability so the same program can be used. However, is C/C++ useful for mobile programming?

    I'll try...I think in this case..by mobile we mean how many operating systems can the program run under?...if thats the case well Java is a very mobile programming language becasue java has this "fake" virtual operating system that you can install on other operating systems...making java usable on mac, linux, windows, and even cellphones.
