    Hi all,

    I'm not a developer but thought I should post a message mentioning what I just read that I found very interesting and thought developers should see if this could help WebOS out at all.

    Please read this if you have time:

    Swiss firm claims huge boost in Android app performance, battery life with new virtual machine -- Engadget

    Can a virtual machine really run on a phone?

    Yes. You run the Java Virtual Machine on your phone right now:

    /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5-palm/bin/java -Xexact -m 10M -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5-palm/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5-palm/jre/bin:

    If this company were to turn their attention to the JVM on WebOS, they might be able to make things better here as well.

    *BTW* Your definition of Virtual Machine is probably not the same as what Java calls a Virtual Machine. The JVM simply implements a virtualized CPU instruction set not a whole machine.
