If you had read the "Full Story" link to the article Phone Scoop pulled it's info from for it's front page article: ... »

, then you would have read the following:

"Software to hook the drives up to cellphones has already been produced for J2ME, BREW, Windows Mobile, Symbian and XCCC. Palm compatibility is forthcoming. The platform is open source, which means anyone will be able to create new apps on their system of choice.

"You turn on the BlueTooth on the (DAVE) device, you turn it on on the phone, and they exchange a small Java applicaiton, which gives the phone a file system it uses to browse," Pait said. "It's degined to be extremely friendly from an installation standpoint. You'll see an additional icon on your phone, you tap it, and ... you can explore what's on your drive."

That should answer your question. Which was actually the first thing I was wondering as well.


Hope that helps.
