Sun Microsystems and Toshiba together providing Java technology for 3G handset by Vodafone
Toshiba has adopted Sun Microsystems' high-performance Java software implementation for cell phones to deliver its latest handsets for Vodafone, the world's largest mobile operator.

Sun and Toshiba have jointly deployed the Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) Hotspot Implementation, Sun's Java Virtual Machine (JVM) technology for 3G handsets, and Sun Java Wireless Client software for Vodafone, to put next-generation services into the hands of its customers. Sun provided Toshiba with engineering services and product expertise.

According to Toshiba, the 902T, available now in Japan, and the TS921 (pictured), due for launch in Europe, deliver significant performance improvements over the company's previous products.

The Vodafone TS 921 is a tri-band feature phone with a 1.9 Megapixel camera with auto focus.

"Using our complete mobile Java library, integrated with the industry standard Java Technology for the Wireless Industry (JTWI) specifications, Sun was able to work with Toshiba to provide a highly optimized and customized version of the software stack that caters to Vodafone's requirements," said Eric Chu, senior director, Mobile and Embedded Group, Sun Microsystems.
