Toshiba Corp. has adopted Sun Microsystems Inc.'s high-performance Java software implementation for cell phones to deliver its latest handsets for Vodafone, a mobile operator.

The companies have jointly deployed the connected limited device configuration (CLDC) hotspot implementation, Sun's Java Virtual Machine [JVM] technology that turbo-charges applications for 3G handsets, and Sun Java wireless client software for Vodafone, to put next-generation services into the hands of its customers. Meanwhile, Sun provided Toshiba with engineering services and product expertise.

Toshiba's latest handsets break new ground in both performance and mobile phone user experience. According to Toshiba, the 902T, available now in Japan, and the TS921, due for launch in Europe, deliver significant performance improvements over the company's previous products.

"Sun's software engineering expertise helped Toshiba reduce its time to market in providing a cost-effective, high-performance handset for a key customer," said Kosei Okamoto, chief technology executive for Mobile Communications Company, one of Toshiba's in-house companies.
