SAN FRANCISCO -- Nokia today announced the new edition of its Series 40 platform for mobile application development, opening up new opportunities for developers and operators to target the broader consumer marketplace with the latest in mobile services and applications.

The new Series 40 5th Edition is a full hardware, software and Application Programming Interface architecture, incorporating Java(TM) Platform Micro Edition (Java ME) technology with support for the latest version of the mobile information device profile (MIDP 2.1), and providing an enhanced UI that enables developers to build richer multimedia applications and services for mass market Nokia mobile devices.

The latest evolution of the highest-volume mobile-development platform available, Series 40 5th Edition implements the advanced JSR-248 Mobile Service Architecture specification, completed in 2006 and designed by an industry task force led by Nokia and Vodafone to reduce fragmentation and provide a consistent set of Java technologies for high-volume mobile handsets. JSR-248 is also a key component of the S60 platform and Nokia's commitment to JSR-248 implementation in both platforms ensures a high level of application portability between Series 40 and S60 devices.

"Nokia is very pleased to underscore its commitment to Java technologies with the delivery of these advanced enhancements to Series 40 5th Edition, enabling developers and operators to provide a new generation of advanced applications and services to the mass-market of mobile phone users," said Lee Epting, vice president, Forum Nokia, Nokia's global developer support program. "This new platform for high-volume Nokia devices will leverage the latest Java-based functionality to provide a richer and more productive mobile experience to consumers and business users around the globe."
