today only i was able to find about it... it is going to be costly i suppose... but looks really cool..
if there is something like kAWT, that is there for the Palms...it will be awesome....
With the low level Canvas/GameCanvas, i am wondering about how to put say menuitems that can clicked on with the keys....
Can we use something like collision detection for this....

When using the low level graphics API you can capture the keys events. When the user select FIRE you can process a selection event. You will need to build login for 'focus' and 'selected' widget states.
http://java.sun.com has example for building UIs with the low level API. In addition there are some really good examples around the web.
I use a standard list component (widget) to create custom UIS. Here are some examples using a single codebase.
