Cell phone Java standard announced

Sun has announced that it, with its business partners, has created the much-anticipated standard for cell phone Java operations. Those who will be using the mobile information device profile (MIDP) include Motorola, Nokia, LG Electronics, Nextel, NTT DoCoMo, SmarTone, EasTone, Telefonica, One 2 One and others. MIDP-enabled phones will be able to access various services such as online games and run programs that will create real-time stock charts.

In a related story, Sun has purchased Linux appliance seller Cobalt Networks, suprising many watchers who note that the move would seem to bolster Linux against Sun’s Solaris.
