I was just wondering, lets say I were to develop an application for handphones using MIDP for instance a game. How are the users going to install the game into the handphone? Will those Java phones have things like HotSync/Cradle used in Palm?

I think one option for cell phone users is to download a new java app using GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). This is faster than other modes of data transmission and relatively less costly.

Typically, there are two ways to load MIDP applications to a cell phone.
The first method is to load MIDP programs via a data cable from your PC. For example, Motorola is offering such a package called JAL (Java Application Loader) with a data cable. https://commerce.motorola.com/idenonline/ideveloper/program/program_tools.cfm
The second method is to download MIDP programs from an Internet site over the wireless network, also called Over-the-Air provisioning. You can find more info at http://archives.java.sun.com/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind0104&L=kvm-interest&P=R33103
