More Java-Linux Mobiles on the Horizon

Esmertec and MontaVista have entered into a strategic alliance that will eventually bring more Java-Linux enabled mobile phones to market. Motorola was the first company to release a Java-Linux handset almost 2 years ago, and since then we have yet to see many companies follow. Since NTT DoCoMo now owns MontaVista Linux, we will see many phones from them using the new platform announced today.

The Jbed Advanced multitasking J2ME-platform integrated with MontaVista’s Consumer Electronics Linux Edition will deliver a fully optimized and open solution for mobile handset manufacturers and semiconductor vendors.

“This will enable device manufacturers, operators and application providers to further accelerate market growth for consumer multimedia services.” said Christophe Francois, Senior Vice President, Strategic Marketing, Esmertec.

The partnership should provide a fully open, standards based mobile software platform for the wireless industry.
