Sun Micro to change stock symbol to JAVA from SUNW

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Sun Microsystems Inc (SUNW.O) said on Thursday it plans to change its Nasdaq stock ticker symbol to “JAVA” from “SUNW” on Aug. 27, reflecting the heightened role of the company’s Java Web technology.

Sun Microsystems, the world’s third-largest maker of server computers used by businesses, said the change “more effectively connects it with the marketplace” as its Java platform powers and is viewed via more than 2.1 billion mobile devices and is accessible by almost all personal computers connected to the Internet.
