Hi !
Nokia's Series 60, Series 90 & Series 40 (Developer Platform 2.0) devices are MIDP 2.0 compliant. You can check web sites of phone manufacturers for latest information. (One of the URLs that I can remember)
However it will take some time for these devices to be common among people.
Since these are the latest devices so they are also a bit expensive.

Keep checking this page.
I believe this is the official page.

Unfortunately, that page at Sun seems to be terribly out of date. I could give you a long list of new Nokia MIDP phones that aren't on their list, and some that are on their list that are now available, although the list says they're not yet.
