Motorola and In-Fusio have developed new software that will assist developers in creating more compelling games for Java technology-enabled mobile phones and other wireless devices. Motorola and In-Fusio have created a common API that is designed to provide Java developers with the ability to enhance the graphics, sounds and networking capabilities for games being developed for mobile devices. The API, which will be incorporated into Motorola’s leadership implementation of the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) software, known as the Motorola Embedded Reference Implementation (MERI), will be called the MERI Mobile Games Engine. Motorola has introduced six handsets enabled by Java technology into the market and intends to incorporate the technology into the majority of the handsets it will introduce in 2002. “This platform will greatly improve the user experience by enabling enhanced graphical, audio, and even motion effects for gaming applications,” said Peter Aloumanis, vice president of Motorola and director of the U.S. Market Operations for the iDen Subscriber Group. “Using this API, developers will be able to make games that display animation, play music, make backlighting flash, and vibrate the phone to make the player part of the action.”
