Hello Shailesh,
I can answer your question partly-the major SmartCard players using JavaCard technology that I know are Gemplus, Sun Microsystems and Visa International.

Also, the GSM standard now supports JavaCard for the SIM cards used in cellphones. Don't know if any phones shipping use it yet, though.
