Sun buys mobile phone software maker SavaJe

Sun Microsystems announced plans to acquire the assets of Java developer SavaJe Technologies Inc

Sun Microsystems said Thursday it plans to acquire the intellectual property of SavaJe Technologies, a provider of Mobile Java application development tools.

SavaJe offers the SavaJe Mobile Platform, an open Java platform that wireless service providers and handset makers can use to brand and add features to mobile phones.

Sun created the Java programming language and recently released the code to the open source community for development of more Java applications.

Sun did not disclose how much it is paying for the privately-held SavaJe, but said it was a small enough amount that it need not be disclosed to shareholders of the publicly-traded Sun.

Sun promised more details about its plans for SavaJe at the JavaOne Conference scheduled for May 8-11 in San Francisco.

Sun said it expects to close the SavaJe asset acquisition by the end of June.
