Hi,
When u say that nokia new mobiles are Java enabled? Then does it mean that there is some thing like JVM buil-in mobiles or anything else?
Bye,

Yes, all Nokia Series 40 and Series 60 devices have JVMs build into the hardware.

Yes, the stuff for the phones is on its own track. In the Java universe, there's J2EE for enterprise applications, J2SE for desktop applications, and J2ME for small devices. Most of J2ME is developed as Java Specification Requests (JSRs) under the Java Community Process (http://jcp.org/).

Do you know which version of the JVM is in the nokia phones - do they support MIDP1.0 or 2.0?

Never mind... based on this thread it looks like 2.0

I suspect that it depends on the phone. Older ones probably support only MIDP 1.0. The new ones will support MIDP 2.0.

All the Nokias so far have been 1.0. They just announced the 6600, which will be their first MIDP 2.0 device, but it's not available yet.

Did they give a timeframe on when the 6600 will be out? More to the point, even if they did should we believe it?
Seems like I've been hearing "Real Soon Now" for quite a while, and while I know Europe and Japan are swimming in cool phones and high bandwidth, I have yet to see signs of it here.
