Hello Steve and welcome to the JavaRanch.
First things first, may I ask you to take another look at the naming policy and adjust your display name accordingly.
Regarding your questions...
The best way to start is a combination of a book and a habit of following related discussion forums such as this one, forum.nokia.com, MicroDevNet, and Sun J2ME forums.
There is no certification yet, but Sun has SCMAD beta starting in a couple of days.

Thanks!
i am also wondering what is the job opening distribution among different java fields: j2se, j2ee, j2me,... maybe it is hard to categorize jobs this way. but i got a feeling, j2me seems to be hot in the future.

I've also heard of similar predictions about J2ME being the skill to have. On the other hand, being a relatively simple toolkit in the GUI sense, MIDP applications are a prime target for heavy tool automation. What does Michael think about this?

Hi, may I suggest you to take a look at www.benhui.net?
it is a mobile developer resources portal that has lots of J2ME links, bluetooth code, and java phone review. It is recently updated with lots of new content.
Cheers,
Ben

your web site is good and informative.
would you know of some affordable devices to test out applications ? specially j2me enable phones. the sony ericsson P900 is way too expensive...
thanks
