Java VM for IPhone
JamVM is a new Java Virtual Machine which conforms to the JVM specification version 2 (blue book). In comparison to most other VM's (free and commercial) it is extremely small, with a stripped executable on PowerPC of only ~200K, and Intel 180K. However, unlike other small VMs (e.g. KVM) it is designed to support the full specification, and includes support for object finalisation, Soft/Weak/Phantom References, class-unloading, the Java Native Interface (JNI) and the Reflection API.JamVM currently only includes an interpreter (keeps it small). However, the interpreter is highly optimised, and performance is on par with a simple JIT. As most of the code is written in C it is easy to port to new architectures.
Skype for the IPhone
There are so many posts everywhere on the internet about Skype and the IPhone. On each IPhone forum it is possible to find something similar to "Is there a version of Skype for the IPhone?". And the answer was NO. There are some workarounds, but it's not what users want. However there is a great possibility, that all IPhone users will hear quite soon "YES there is Skype for the IPhone".
Skype announced a beta mobile version. It will be possible to chat, receive and make calls to Skype users and more. And it was written in... Yes, Java. So when Java will be avaliable for the IPhone all the users will be able to use Skype.
More information about Skype Mobile can be found here.

Java "Hello world" continued
Java "Hello world" on the IPhone
Hinkmond Wong (Java Micro Edition group at Sun Microsystems) recently published a wonderful screenshot on his blog:
This is the simpliest Java application running on the IPhone simulator. The only thing this application does is it prints "Hello world.". Well done! The whole world is looking forward to see more.
