LG Introduces Mobile Phone Based on Java OS
LG Electronics and SavaJe Technologies Inc. have annoucned a handset using SavaJe OS, a Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) Connected Device Configuration (CDC) based open OS. LG Electronics is demonstrating and promoting the product to operators worldwide, and plans to start producing handsets to operator specifications for delivery in 2006.

The LG Electronics handset features a slide design with 176x220 pixels color TFT display, 1.3MPixel camera, Bluetooth, and an SD Card memory card for storage of up to 1GB of applications, music, video and pictures. The handset plays MP3, AAC and AAC+ music formats as well as H.263 and MPEG4 videos.

SavaJe OS is an open operating system for handsets, based on Sun Microsystems' Java technology. All handset applications, including the handset UI itself, are written in Java. This enables LG Electronics to offer operator customizations, while using a common software platform. Using deep theming functionality, SavaJe OS can implement operator-specified applications and menus, as well as color schemes, sounds, background images and icons that affect both built-in and downloaded applications.

SavaJe offers a multitasking mobile handset Java environment for applications developers. The operating system implements open Java standards developed by the Java Community Process (JCP). The OS offers a rich set of Java ME APIs, including core support for both the Java ME Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) and the CDC environment, using a single optimized Java Virtual Machine.

In addition, SavaJe OS opens wireless development to desktop developers for the first time on mobile devices, with support for Sun's Swing-based advanced graphics API. Additional Java APIs are provided for multimedia, messaging, telephony, IM/chat, networking, file system, and PIM access. As a result, compelling new applications and services can be easily and rapidly developed by both wireless and desktop Java programmers.

Open OS security is addressed by the implementation of OMA-compliant Digital Rights Management (DRM), a secure key store, certificate and policy management, and a complete set of Java ME CDC security APIs for cryptography, secure networking, authorization and authentication.
