Start-up licenses Java for chips

Start-up Nazomi has licensed from Sun Microsystems two versions of Java, one geared for handheld computers and for cell phones. Based in Santa Clara, Calif., Nazomi builds chips that run some Java instructions in a chip itself instead of the usual Java software environment.

Java lets the same program run on several different devices--for example, cell phones from different companies. Sun created Java, but a host of other companies now contribute to its development.
