I got a tip today from somebody about this DSM (Domain Specific Modelling) application. Apparently, it lets you draw out applications that can then become fully functional. This sounds like RAD tools from the late 80s or earl 90s. But did they really work? Well, I'm still using C. I haven't used this one, so I can't comment on it's flexibility. It looks quite intruiging, though.
I’s a case description on the web pages of the domain-specific modeling forum (DSM forum). It describes the use of a modeling language dedicated to developing enterprise applications on top of the python for series 60 runtime, issued by Forum Nokia. It basically allows virtually anyone, programmer or not, Series 60 expert or not to develop enterprise applications on smartphones. Not only does it make app development significantly faster and less complex, it also ensures that applications are always implemented correct since the full code is automatically generated from the designs. Result: Draw an application and you can immediately execute it on a Series 60 phone.

Let me bring to your attention a true RAD tool --GoDB--> a multi platform mobile application developement tool . you code once and deploy in multiple platforms like windows mobile (pocket PC, win ce, smartphones), palm, symbian, embedded linux, without changing a single line of code...
