I can see that the only platform fully supported for CDC is Linux/x86. It's a good future intention, but I think that it's not the most recommended platform, as the OS available for mobile devices uses to be mainly Windows Mobile, Symbian or Palm OS. I've noticed that the most viewed post in this forum is 'Building and running on Windows Mobile 5.0 (Pocket PC) iPAQ (1.985 views at the moment)'

What about targeting a full support for these OS, maybe beginning with W.Mobile. I know there have been several aproachments, but at the moment Linux/x86 is the only 'official platform'

Congratulations for the phoneMe Advanced guys.

A very good solution is available. The CrE-ME JVM of NSIcom is a mature and stable implementation of CDC/Personal Java. It is the engine of choice for commercial Java applications for the Windows Mobile market. Thousands of applications on Windows Mobile have already been deployed with this JVM. Evaluation versions can be downloaded from www.nsicom.com. Contact info@nsicom.com for more details.

Well now that phoneME is opensource I guess Sun would be more than happyif you (or somebody else) could forma group working on a phoneME-port for windows-ME based operating systems.

Don't forget Sun is a company with the goal of making money ... by fullfilling customer needs. From that point of view you (and all other downloading and using phoneME for free) are not even customers, so ... they don't really have a reason to do this right no ;)

There is already some source from mysaifu, I guess it would be very useful for the integration.

Besides, last I heard Windows CE only had 5% of the market.

Hi,

I'm not a fan of Microsoft Windows Mobile, but I need to offer the widest possible coverage for mobile apps, and PDAs sold with Windows Mobile accounted 60% of the market in 2007 (http://www.theunwired.net/?itemid=3865).

What other possibilities do I have for running Java apps on a PDA ¿commercial JVMs? ¿Linux -> try to buy one for a novice user?

I agree the comments about Sun and opensource, it's just that I don't understand the first platform choice.

Hi Miguel,

I think the Zaurus (SL-C3200) is still pretty good:

Buy it from:

Here are more Linux PDAs:
