In five years, all digital mobile handsets will be capable of running wireless Java, according to a recent industry report from ARC Group. The report, Wireless Java: Handset & Application Revenue Streams, found that the chief driver for rapid adoption of Java is broad industry support coupled with Java’s potential to aid the migration to 3G. The study predicts that by 2003, 421 million mobile handsets will be Java-enabled and rapid growth is expected to continue until Java becomes “ubiquitous” in 2006, with over 1 billion handsets worldwide incorporating the technology.
