PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Danger Inc. announced today that the next version (2.3) of its hiptop® software has passed compatibility tests with Sun Microsystem’s Java™ 2 Platform, Micro Edition™ (J2ME Platform™). Danger plans to begin releasing the next version of its software to hiptop users later this year through over-the-air updates. Danger has met compatibility requirements with the Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) 1.1 and Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) 2.0 specifications within J2ME. CLDC and MIDP have been a spectacular success for Sun Microsystems in the mobile phone and wireless device markets and have established Java™ as one of the premier standards in the mobile industry. Today there are 579 million mobile Java devices connected to mobile networks worldwide.

“Sun is happy to welcome Danger to the Java community,” said Eric Chu, Senior Director, Mobile and Embedded Group of Sun Microsystems. “Danger’s hiptop platform combined with Java technology is a great match that will generate compelling new applications and services for hiptop devices.”

“We are pleased to have reached this important milestone,” said Les Hamilton, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Operations, Danger Inc. “By harnessing the talents of the vast Java developer community we will accelerate the delivery of new applications and enhance the unparalleled user experience on hiptop devices.”
