there are a some Motorola J2ME enabled handsets being made available for
Nextel's iDen network. Its still early days. Nextel controls its channel and
Motorola is the only handset vendor (it more or less financed the build out
of the network) and this should result in clean execution. Nextel
subscribers tend to use the phones for work--primarily blue collar work.
Would expect that at least a couple of million will be in use by the end of
the year!

Subject: (keitai-l) US Java Phones

CNET reports that Java Phones were introduced in March in the US.
Anybody has more info? How are sales going?

Qualcomm adds to partner brew CNET News.com April 13, 2001
Analysts say even with Qualcomm's BREW gaining more than 60 developers, it
still pales in comparison with Sun's Java initiative for cell phones, which
has signed on about 11,000 developers. Phones with Java and applications
like a rudimentary Tetris-style game already were introduced last month in
the United States.
