High points:
  • "Sun came to the conclusion it could make a JVM work on the iPhone after taking 24 hours to look at information on Apple's SDK" (made public last week).
  • Sun plans to release the JVM "some time after June."
  • "The JVM is to be based on the Java Micro Edition (ME) version of Java," but "future plans could include extending more sophisticated Java Standard Edition (SE) and JavaFX technologies to the iPhone," according to Eric Klein, VP of Java marketing at Sun.
  • Additional reference: InfoWorld.com - Sun: We'll put Java on the iPhone.

    A potential glitch: Apple Insider - iPhone SDK may block Firefox, Java, background apps.
