Sprint Titan introduces IBM mobile platform to Windows Mobile
IBM has released the Lotus Expeditor software platform, extending desktop computing and Web 2.0 capabilities to mobile phones.

Mobile phone users will be able to run several desktop-style applications like social networking, mashups and other consumer or business applications simultaneously on a variety of mobile phones.

The new version of IBM Lotus Expeditor 6.1.2 software enables mobile application developers to create new applications and services that combine information from different sources. Key to Lotus Expeditor technology is the use of the Eclipse embedded Rich Client Platform (eRCP) application model, which allows applications to be created to span desktop and mobile devices.

Sprint is providing the application developer community with a beta version of a new software platform named Titan based on IBM Lotus Expeditor software. It allows developers to move business applications using the Eclipse development framework from the desktop to most Windows Mobile 6 smartphones from Sprint.

In addition to supporting existing MIDP Java ME applications, it includes the more capable CDC/Foundation Java Virtual Machine and OSGi framework. This combination provides a platform for dynamic distribution and collaboration of independent software components and applications.

Support for the Eclipse embedded Rich Client (eRCP) application model means this platform can run generically written rich GUI applications that can run across a broad range of devices and desktop computers.

The platform also includes APIs to give you access to Sprint specific phone features. The Titan tools, which install into the Eclipse IDE, provide best of the breed development and source level debug capabilities for the platform. 3rd party tools are available providing advanced visual development and profiling functionality.

Developers already are beginning to use Titan to create CRM, sales force automation and other business applications. First made available in December 2007 to developers at the annual Sprint Application Developers Conference, Titan can now be downloaded on most Windows Mobile 6 smartphones from Sprint.
