Java Sun's starting to phase out mobile Java that's been the standard on cellphones and other small devices in favor of their standard edition, which are made for PCs everywhere. Sun VP James Gosling's reasoning for shifting everyone over to Java Standard Edition is because 'cellphones and TV set-top boxes are growing up', meaning they're getting enough processing power to handle all the demands of full-featured Java.

"Cellphones and TV set-top boxes are [...] getting enough processing power to handle all the demands of full-featured Java."

Boy, I'd call that counter-intuitive. Unless maybe the "full-featured Java" were radically tuned for a smaller environment. Java's my favorite designing language, but haven't the Java folks always been in radical denial of the footprint?
