Sprint Updates its Java-based Application Developers Kit

Sprint released a new version of its application developer toolkit built on Sun Microsystems' Java platform. New developer resources in the Sprint Wireless Toolkit 3.3 include:

  • Development tools for the upcoming Samsung Instinct, a touch-screen Java phone, with key features such as over-the-air downloads, GPS support, and full multi-media streaming.

  • Features that enable application developers to create more easily through more automated processes and opportunities to "debug" programs earlier.

Sprint noted that it recently joined the Open Handset Alliance, along with more than 30 other participating companies, to support the free and open mobile applications platform named Android.
