IN-FUSIO has cemented its commitment to the development of the Java community using its next generation EGE Software Development Kit by becoming the first mobile service publisher to license Sun's Java ME technology.
Under the new agreement, IN-FUSIO's EGE SDK will be available upon request for mobile publishers and developers, for the hassle-free creation and development of complex 3D connected, multiplayer and community oriented mobile content.
Thomas Landspurg, IN-FUSIO's CTO, stated: "We are extremely excited that we will very soon be able to offer our Java ME compatible EGE SDK to publishers, operators and manufacturers. With this announcement we are sending a clear signal to the industry that our solutions are mainstream and available to all."
The recently announced EGE (Entertainment Gaming Extensions) technology has been designed to enable publishers and developers to integrate multiplayer, connected and 3D gaming possibilities in mobile games. Geared towards increasing the ease of communication between players, EGE allows the integration of a 'buddy list' and 'recommend to a friend' feature, in addition to a user-friendly interface and a dedicated game menu that includes a unique 'try before you buy' function.
IN-FUSIO remains an active member of the Java community and the company is dedicated to supporting its development. The firm has demonstrated this support in numerous ways in the past, such as playing a key role in the standardization specification for mobile 3D graphics and helping in the definition of the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP 2.0).
The company's latest mobile development solution, EGE, will initially be embedded in a range of handsets from companies including LG, Sagem and Philips as Orange brings the platform to market in France and the UK. IN-FUSIO are confident that the platform will be widely adopted in a short space of time, and the licensing deal with Sun can only assist them in achieving this goal.
