Java-enabled audio, visual and multimedia applications will appear on mobile devices using Intel's Xscale-based processors, following a deal between Intel and Sun Microsystems.
Sun's Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) HotSpot Implementation will be ported for use on mobile devices such as phones and PDAs running Intel processors.
CLDC HotSpot Implementation is a high performance Java Virtual Machine targeted at mass-market mobile devices.
"Bringing together XScale and CLDC HotSpot Implementation will enable a new wave of mobile applications and innovation within the mobile device segment," said Hans Geyer, Intel vice president and general manager of the Intel PCA Components Group.
Optimisations to Sun's CLDC HotSpot Implementation to take advantage of Intel's XScale technology are expected to be delivered to original equipment manufacturers in the coming quarter.
Handsets incorporating the additions should become available later this year.
