Finland's Nokia has unveiled plans for the wide deployment of Java technology in its mobile terminals.

The company intends to deliver over 50m mobile terminals supporting the Java platform for all segments of the consumer market by the end of 2002 and twice that amount by the end of 2003. To facilitate third party software development for its Java terminals, Nokia has also partnered with Borland to introduce the JBuilder MobileSet, a tool that can be used by developers to create applications for Nokia's future Java handsets.

In addition Nokia plans to introduce the Nokia 9290 Communicator mobile phone to the North American market. According to the company this will be the first product in the region to be based on the Symbian operating system and PersonalJava. It will be similar to its sister product, the Nokia 9210 Communicator for Europe and Asia, featuring a display capable of showing 4,096 colours, a full keyboard and data synchronisation over SyncML.

The Nokia 9290 Communicator is expected to be available for GSM 1900MHz networks in 1H'2002. Pricing details were not revealed.
