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.

JavaFX

I see this as a move designed to accelerate the deployment of JavaFX on mobile devices. I don't think anyone really expected JavaFX to be ported to JME, but Sun definitely want to see it on phones.

I think the iPhone is, if nothing else, a great example of how mobile UIs are entering a new generation, and JavaFX is going to be well-positioned to participate.

I'm not sure javafx is really the gem people want it to be. I'm pretty unconvinced.

But, hey, I'm not an analyst.
