Sun Microsystems this week announced the availability of the JavaFX Mobile platform, which will go up against the likes of Adobe’s Flash and Microsoft’s Silverlight. The platform is designed for delivering rich content and services across a range of mobile devices – from mass market feature phones to smartphones.
Sun also announced that several leading handset manufacturers, service providers and ISVs are working with Sun to ship JavaFX Mobile handsets. Partners include LG Electronics, MobiTV, Sprint and Sony Ericsson.
Sun will be premiering JavaFX Mobile at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, next week.
Sun says the Java platform is available on more than 2.6 billion mobile phones and is supported by 6.5 million software developers.
