LG's SavaJe JAVA-based smartphone

LG SavaJe phone

Symbian, Windows Mobile, Palm, embedded, step aside, there's a new player in town in the mobile OS market, and they go by the name of SaveJe. We've heard nary a peep from them outside some bits here and there about ramp-up business partnerships and what not, but they've got to be stoked to have a functioning LG handset to show off. The J2ME-based OS is powering a rather chubby looking device which features a 176 x 220 display, 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, SD slot, media players for MP3, AAC, H.263, MPEG-4. Now we'll see how long before the first SavaJe devices make it to the US (or if there's room for another smartphone OS — we think there may just be).
