Developping for PDAs

Hi :-)
I've been using Java's jdk for basic academic work last year, but for my end-of-study work, I must develop a little museum guiding application for PDA (most probably iPaq) with graphical, sound and vocal features (if possible with Text To Speech).
I am getting messed up with all the available technologies, so could you please help me out for choosing the appropriate one for my work?
What Java technology should I install on my desktop pc to write this multimedia application and test it "as if it was on a PDA"? How do I set up everything? Are there particular libraries for graphical, sound and TTS features?
Or should I turn to C++? eMbedded Visual C++? And same question : are there particular libraries for graphical, sound and TTS features?
If you have an idea, please take some time to answer me, I'm starting to despair ;-)

Welcome to JavaRanch!
Please don't post the same question in multiple forums. It can make it difficult to follow a conversation.
I'm closing this thread and suggest that the conversation be continued in The Java 2 Micro Edition Forum.
