ARM has announced that their Jazelle technology will be deployed in a new line of FOMA handsets by NTT DoCoMo. Emerging applications such as mobile games and business tools place increased performance and power demands on Java technology-enabled handsets. Through ARM’s partnership with Aplix Corporation, a global leader in deploying Java technology in mobile phones, ARM Jazelle technology is being adopted in the DoJa/Java platform for FOMA handsets, which is being jointly developed by Aplix and NTT DoCoMo.
“Java technology is a key component for innovative mobile handset applications,” said Kiyohito Nagata, vice president and managing director of NTT DoCoMo’s Product Department. “I believe that ARM’s Jazelle Java acceleration technology will contribute to the creation of the ideal environment for powerful and versatile applications.”
“In 2001, Aplix integrated ARM’s innovative Jazelle technology, with JBlend, Aplix’s Java platform product,” said Ryu Koriyama, representative director, chairman and CEO of Aplix Corporation. “Since 2003, products incorporating this fusion of Jazelle technology and JBlend have been adopted in a wide array of mobile communication devices. Today’s announcement that NTT DoCoMo will implement these products in its FOMA handsets is a tremendous result for the ongoing technical cooperation between Aplix and ARM.”
