    Does anyone know if the Pre will run Java applications? According to phonearena, it won't, which doesn't make sense to me.

    Nope, it doesn't have a Java engine. Pre applications are written in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (which is in not Java, though works in kind of the same way).

    Since webOS runs on Linux, do you think that palm might be able to add a JavaVM to the webOS "server" to support J2ME? It would have to prob come from Palm since that would be pretty deep in the FW...

    I'm going to try running the IBM WebSphere JVM in Classic, if I can still find the installer on my hard drive.

    That would be really interesting, if Java were able to run on Pre. This would enable a little lower-level access to the OS. Maybe, Palm will give devs a choice between the web standard HTML+CSS+JSJSJS $or$ $a$ $lower$ $level$ $language$, $like$ $Java$.
