Sprint to Offer Powerful Java™ Technology Wireless Development Tools

(April 23, 2002) - Sprint, which operates the largest all-digital, all-PCS nationwide network and is the fastest growing wireless carrier, has formed a technology and marketing relationship with Metrowerks, a leading provider of wireless development tools and services, to provide developers an integrated development environment for creating content for Sprint Third Generation, Java™ technology-enabled handsets.

Sprint announced that CodeWarrior™ Wireless Studio 7, Professional Edition will include out-of-the-box support for Sprint's 3G-enabled phones and programming interfaces (APIs). The Sprint-specific JAVA API document, and Sprint PCS Wireless ToolkitSM for the Java platform, which is the testing environment for J2ME, includes device emulators - the essential technical components needed to create wireless applications for Sprint's Third Generation Network. Sprint also plans future marketing initiatives to encourage J2ME developers to engage in creating applications for Sprint.

For Sprint customers, 3G1X services are planned to launch nationwide in mid-2002. After the launch, Sprint expects faster wireless data speeds and enhancements for existing applications and services when using a 3G enabled device. It also establishes a platform for later releases of new and more robust applications as data speeds increase including enhanced messaging, e-mail with attachments, enhanced games, video and audio clips, high-speed Internet browsing, and digital imaging.

Metrowerks was first in providing development tools that comprehensively support J2ME and PersonalJava technologies. The company's new CodeWarrior Wireless Studio 7 provides advanced J2ME capabilities that enable developers to create and test applications across multiple devices. CodeWarrior Wireless Studio is part of a comprehensive portfolio of wireless development tools from Metrowerks that includes support for Java Card™ technology, J2SE™, J2ME™ and PersonalJava™ platforms. CodeWarrior is also the tool of choice for the Symbian OS™ and the market leader in development tools for Palm OS™ handheld computers.
