Snap Sun Decision Launches Java at iPhone

El Reg reports: “Less than a day after Apple unveiled its much-discussed iPhone SDK, Sun Microsystems has told the world it will build a Java Virtual Machine for Steve Job’s handheld status symbol. ‘We’re very excited,’ Eric Klein, Sun’s vice president of Java marketing, told the The Reg. ‘We’ve spent the last 24 hours furiously looking through what information was made publicly available, and we feel comfortable enough at this point on the information we have to commit the engineering resources to bring the JVM over to the iPhone and the iTouch as fast as our schedules and Apple’s release schedule will allow.'” Sun plans to distribute the JVM free of cost via the App store.
