Nokia Offers Java Runtime 2.0 for S60
Nokia recently made a new version of Java Runtime available for S60 phones. It includes some usability and performance improvements and a host of other under-the-hood changes. Nokia says it will be easier to install applications, and applications will boot easier. Nokia also said that from now on Java updates will come separately from core system software updates. Java upgrades can be accessed via the built-in Nokia S60 Software Update feature. Right now, Java Runtime 2.0 is available only for S60 5th Edition (the 5800 XpressMusic and N97). Nokia didn't say when it would become available to S60 3rd Edition phones.
