Does your cel phone have, on the application section, a Java logo? If so, your cel phone is able to execute programs developed in Java. If not, it is a fact that your next phone will have the ability to execute Java programs. Two billions of persons in the world have access to a cel phone, thus SUN Microsystems has generated a strong strategy in order to include Java on these devices.

This tutorial is about how to program these mobile devices (cel phones and PDAs) using Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME).
