Maemo is a young platform and we need to concentrate in our core use
cases. It was decided that official support for Java was not crucial at
this point. There are many other technologies not officially supported
for the same reason, but this doesn't make Nokia anti-them.

Why "despite Nokia"? Nobody is stopping Sun, IBM, Jalimo or whoever from
going ahead with Java support. In fact these companies and organizations
have channels of communication/collaboration with Nokia. If there is any
obstacle in the way caused by Nokia let us know.
