Sun Launches Consumer Site for Mobile Java Technology Based Entertainment
Posted on 27-Mar-2006 18:27. | Tags Filed under: News.

Sun Microsystems, Inc. has launched, offering mobile Java technology-based applications for purchase and download, along with information for consumers about Java technology and the Java brand.

The company created and is one of the leading advocates of Java technology.

Subscribers on more than 250 wireless carriers worldwide can access the new site via a web browser on any Java Powered mobile device, including mobile phones and PDAs.

The new mobile web site is a companion site to Sun's, a popular consumer entertainment site for Java powered games, productivity tools etc. and the global home to "Get Java Free" for the desktop.

On its launch will contain a range of Java Powered mobile applications including action game Cannon Fodder, racing game Lotus Challenge, timed puzzle game Sudoku Solver, a winter wonderland-themed game called Snow Doku and NetChess that enables interactive play with live chess players around the world.

Java developers can sell and deliver their games, ringtones, videos and other applications directly to mobile phone users and use Bango, a mobile content enabler, to bill consumers for their content. Powered by Bango's "browse and buy" technology, developers retain control over product offerings and pricing. This "direct-to-consumer" approach operates in conjunction with mobile carriers' content portals and offers consumers a range of ways to pay depending on the network users are on.
