Java on top of BREW? Performance - go or no-go?

Are you doing (or contemplating doing) Java apps for the latest killer Java phones from Nokia, Mot or Siemens? My buddies are doing this using Sun's Wireless Toolkit & its fast. Supposedly BREW will support Java but has anyone tried this? A Java VM would sit on top of the BREW layer & OS, on top of the phone chipset. I would think the performance would suffer. Any comments or experiences anyone could share?

I have not seen any sign of JVMs on top of BREW, YET. I have heard that Qualcomm does have agreements with HP and IBM for their respective JVMs.
Hope to see some announcements at CTIA 2002, Orlando in a couple of weeks.

If the VM runs on top of BREW, then yes, I'd expect some performance loss. However, the VM can easily be written to run directly on top of the native OS and to coexist side-by-side with the BREW runtime, in which case it wouldn't be so much of a problem. It's really up to the device manufacturers, I think, to decide which way to go.
