I suppose the question was really more concerned with making use of
the Java support that a lot of new mobile 'phones seem to have these
days. I can't imagine that a significant number of 'phones out in the
European market (and certainly in the Norwegian market) are running
some kind of Windows derivative, but many manufacturers are promoting
their Java application (eg. games) support.
