GUI library

I recently started developing in Java ME. I was really surprised to see how problematic GUIs are.
Let's take Blackberry as an exaple:
- If you display a Form with a lone Textfield, it turns into a Textarea.
- Menues at the bottom of the screen aren't displayed. Sure you can open them with the Menu-button, but first you have to guess that they are there.
- Textfields can sometimes be barely visible.
- ...

Does someone know a good GUI library?

The most prominent one is LWUIT, it became part of the new Java ME SDK 3. But what a disapointment - it doesn't work on Blackberries.
J2ME Polish is also a disappointment - the touchscreen-support doesn't work. Must be a bug, because it works with the CVS version.

Have you tried LearnNowOnline?
