Just a day after launching an update to its voice and video chat app for iPhone, Fring has announced that it will no longer offer its apps for Windows Mobile, UIQ, or J2ME users.

The move shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. The number of phones and other devices shipping with Windows Mobile has slowed to a crawl, as Microsoft pushes its new Windows Phone 7 operating system and Android, iOS, BlackBerry, and Symbian continue to dominate the smartphone market. But it’s always a bit sad to see companies cease development of software designed to run on older phones.

Fring will continue to support existing users of its Windows Mobile, Java, and UIQ clients, but moving forward the company will only be offering downloads of its apps for iOS, Android, and Symbian.
