ZRRT, the Chinese mobile technology provider, and ARM (Nasdaq: ARMHY) announced today that ZRRT Communications Technology Co., Ltd. is collaborating with ARM to integrate the ARM Jazelle Technology Enabling Kit (JTEK) software into ZRRT's Java virtual machine.
The ARM JTEK technology will be used to help develop Java mobile phone services for UniJa, a Java-based, value-adding service platform promoted by the strategic alliance of China Unicom, Sun Microsystems and ZRRT.
ARM Jazelle technology enables devices to execute Java byte code directly, so wireless and internet device developers can build in the capability to run high-performance Java technology applications much faster, with limited power and cost penalties. The Jazelle technology will enable ZRRT to provide UniJa with a Java platform, which will be used primarily by China Unicom's 100 million subscribers. The UniJa environment will provide mobile subscribers with rich services with no application compatibility issues between handsets, or intrusion of illegal programs.
