Nokia announces next generation Java platform for Series 60
Posted on 28-Jun-2005 09:54 | Tags Filed under: News



Nokia has announced that Java-enabled Series 60 based smartphones will include an enhanced configuration for the Java platform, driving opportunities for significant improvements in remote management of mobile devices and creating new business opportunities for Java platform software developers in the mobile middleware market.

Announced at the 2005 JavaOne conference in San Francisco, Nokia's vision for the next generation of the Java Platform in the mobile space will build the Connected Device Configuration (CDC) into Series 60 based smartphones. CDC provides a more flexible and modular device environment upon which Nokia and other Series 60 device manufacturers can build versatile, powerful Java technology-enabled mobile phones for consumer and enterprise users.

The Series 60 Platform is built on the Symbian OS. It is licensed by many mobile phone manufacturers including LG Electronics, Lenovo, Nokia, Panasonic, Samsung, Sendo and Siemens. Nokia alone had cumulatively shipped 25 million Series 60 enabled devices by end of May 2005.

The next generation Java platform for Series 60 enhances the underlying capabilities of the Java technology found in today's J2ME platform for mobile devices. This, in turn, opens the door to the creation of powerful Java technology-based middleware applications, such as those that will enable operators and network administrators to remotely manage and monitor applications and the device platform. Additionally, incorporating CDC into Series 60 Platform will provide the foundation to enable Nokia and other Series 60 device manufacturers to build next-generation mobile phones that easily allow the addition and customization of functionality after a device has been manufactured and deployed.

New developer tools corresponding to the next generation Java platform for Series 60 will be made available in 2nd half 2005 by Nokia's global developer support program, Forum Nokia.
