Hi Terrence,

My name is Peter, I was the poster on Mobile Monday, which has let me here (and to making quite a few posts on this forum already).

So far LWUIT seems like the most complete solution. My current concern is compatibility with Blackberry devices running J2ME (as already expressed on this forum).
