Nokia Java Runtime 2.0 for S60 5th Edition available

Nokia has announced the availability of Nokia Java Runtime 2.0 (JRT 2.0) for Symbian S60 5th Edition – a new, re-written Java mobile execution environment.

Still in beta, Nokia Java Runtime 2.0 features several enhancements that should “make it much more fun for you to enjoy the thousands of games and apps available in Ovi Store and elsewhere.”

The enhancements include: improved execution performance, improved application launch user experience, and one-click application installation.

Nokia Java Runtime 2.0 beta is compatible with Nokia N97 (software versions 10.x.xxx and 11.x.xxx) and Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (software versions 20.x.xxx and 21.x.xxx).

Nokia also said that “Java Runtime will be developed and released independent from S60 releases”, hence users will be able to get the newest version directly to their smartphone, through the Nokia S60 Software Update functionality.
