About utility

The purpose of the About applet is to query the simulator/device for various profile properties and display them on the screen. This information is useful if we are interested in certain characteristics of the device like the screen width/ height or if the device supports flip, vibration or ringer formats, etc. It also serves as a sample code to show how different API References are used.
