More mobile fun : the Java applications provided with my mobile phone are mostly stupid Java games. I really want some more productivity applications found on modern PDA's, like a Palm or Ipaq. So I took a look on my phone''s file system, and found out that most Java applications are MIDlets, Java applications suited for embedded devices like mobile phones. Midlet.org is a site where you can find some interesting applications, like grocery lists, scientific calculators, or telnet clients to run on your mobile, and transform it to a real PDA device. Next step is developping my own MIDlet applications, like explained in this developersWorks article.
