ACCESS Co, a global provider of mobile content delivery and Internet access technologies, has announced that Nokia’s first FOMA handset —the NM850iG — launched by NTT DoCoMo, Inc., will offer three ACCESS products: a FOMA-compatible browser (ACCESS’ NetFront), an email client, and JV-Lite 2 Wireless Edition, a Java execution environment for embedded wireless solutions.
In November 2002, ACCESS signed an umbrella agreement with Japan's mobile phone operator, DoCoMo, to provide a browser for FOMA, their 3G mobile service based on W-CDMA. The NetFront browser for FOMA handsets creates a PC-style Internet environment on mobile phones. NetFront also enables seamless i-mode email and Internet services on the S60 smartphone platform for Nokia’s recently launched NM850iG handset. The JV-Lite2 Wireless Edition has affinity with NetFront for support of DoCoMo’s DoJa and it is designed to share resources and memory with NetFront. As a result of these features, solutions using JV-Lite2 Wireless Edition and NetFront can effectively realize Internet browsing functions with a highly reliable Java execution environment.
ACCESS’ NetFront is widely recognized as one of the world’s most advanced mobile browsers. Supporting the latest Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) browsing 2.2 and Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) standards, it offers full Internet browsing functions*. NetFront is now installed on more than 200 million devices worldwide, and has established itself as a leading browser for mobile phones, computers, and other consumer electronics.
“I am very pleased to offer NetFront on Nokia’s FOMA handsets. This marks the first time ACCESS has provided a FOMA-compatible browser to Nokia, and we remain committed to offering advanced-function mobile solutions for i-mode users throughout the world,” said Toru Arakawa, president and CEO of ACCESS.
