Microsoft to shelve OneApp project?

Microsoft's OneApp project introduced about a year ago may not take off the ground, following in the footsteps of the Kin handsets. OneApp, which would see feature phones receiving an app store and running these apps in markets that include developing countries, was tested in South Africa and in other markets but no future plans were announced for it. According to a Thursday CNET report, Microsoft said it remains "excited about the potential of the OneApp technology and [will] continue to evolve its strategy."

OneApp is being developed by a different department than the Kin and Windows Phone teams. It is being headed up by Amit Mital and the Startup Business Group that also created the Hohm energy and car charging app, Tag barcode tech and ResponsePoint phone system for small businesses.
