Sophia Cradle Releases Mobile Java Compression Tool For Mid-sized Companies

Specially packaged SophiaCompress Deluxe for mid-sized content providers


KYOTO — August 18, 2003 — Sophia Cradle Incorporated (Headquarter: Kyoto; CEO: Kazunori Sugiyama), an innovative developer of mobile phone software, today announced the release of SophiaCompress Deluxe Edition, a new edition for its popular mobile Java application compression tool, on August 25.

Full Story

Today, more than 30 million mobile phone handsets in Japan are equipped with Java applications including i-Appli services. Taking overseas markets into account, mobile Java applications will spread more rapidly especially when better content services are introduced to the market.

On the other hand, application developers face size constraints of mobile phones. Some models only have 10 or 30 kilobyte memory for an application, creating a huge barrier towards the development of rich-featured and value-added applications.

SophiaCompress is the solution to such a problem. Interest concerning Sophia Cradle's original compression technology, has led to many leading content providers and major game makers swiftly adopting SophiaCompress.

There has been two purchasing options forSophiaCompress: Enterprise, with 10 licenses subject to large organizations, and Standard, with one license subject to small businesses and SOHOs. By purchasing the Deluxe Edition you get 5 licenses, each with a lower price than the Standard Edition. It is aimed at companies who fall in between large and small enterprises. It also provides command-line user interface that is not available with Standard Edition.

Sophia Cradle plans to make SophiaCompress support NTT DoCoMo's 505i series and other mobile Java handsets overseas. Moreover, a class integration function will be equipped soon to provide higher compression rate.
