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.

this is a nice move, especially if they do the thing with splitting up the JRE and such to make it lighter, there are certainly lots of shit in j2se you do not need on your cellphone, but language version 1.5 is NOT one of them..

the proper collections framework, generics, and various other nice classes from j2se is surely something that will make it alot nicer to develop for mobile phones.

these new things could also make a MIDP 3.0 be a whole lot better..
