Sun Targets the Mobile Market at CTIA

At CTIA Wireless 2004 in Atlanta, GA, this week, Sun Microsystems announced relationships with RIM, AT&T, Nokia, and other wireless leaders, to address the ever-increasing demand for mobile data services and enterprise applications.

Sun is working with Research In Motion (RIM) to extend mobile Java Web services technology to the more than one million customers currently using BlackBerry. Sun and RIM will enable the end-to-end secure delivery of enterprise data via BlackBerry based on Sun's Java Enterprise System, Java technology for mobile devices, and Web Services technologies. The Sun-RIM relationship is expected to greatly expand mobile data services in networked applications and extend their reach into enterprise markets. Sun will work closely with RIM to help developers, software vendors and solution providers to simplify the development and deployment of mobile enterprise applications based on Web services with Java technology.

Sun's Java Desktop System, a comprehensive, secure and highly affordable enterprise desktop solution will operate in conjunction with AT&T Wireless' nationwide EDGE wireless data network beginning in Fall 2004. The EDGE-enabled Java Desktop System will give AT&T Wireless users the ability to leverage a cost-effective, fully mobile laptop client to stay connected to the Internet, access their corporate networks or check e-mail.

Nokia and Sun Microsystems announced the upcoming release of SNAP Mobile, an online multiplayer gaming solution for Java technology games. The SNAP Mobile solution will bring Nokia's advanced mobile online multiplayer and community technology to a broad range of mobile handsets using Sun's widely adopted Java language. SNAP Mobile is expected to be made available as part of a tools environment based on Sun's J2ME Wireless Toolkit in the third quarter of 2004. With this solution, game developers can create Java technology-based games with a mobile online multiplayer gaming component that will allow consumers to play online connected games with other people around the world.
