SavaJe Java Phone
By Darryl Mocek on May 22, 2006
In case you didn't hear, SavaJe announced an all Java phone at JavaOne, the Jasper S20. In fact, the Jasper was the JavaOne conference device this year. The phone is based on the Java API's, including the 'close to being finalized' JSR-209 Advanced Graphical User Interface, or AGUI for short. AGUI provides a subset of JavaSE's Swing components for building rich UI's on mobile devices. This phone is a GSM device which isn't just for showing how well a phone works with the Java CDC stack. If you don't need another phone, but are interested in Java, then this phone makes a great development/proof of concept/testing platform. You can even get the SavaJe development environment, which integrates with the NetBeans IDE for easy development and deployment of your Java applications. A must have for any JavaME developer.
