    No.

    Just kidding. Aren't android apps written in Java? Isn't that why ORACLE is trying to sue the crap out of Google other than the fact that they make painfully overpriced products and are probably minions from the 3rd circle of Hell?

    Unless the developers for Runescape are in the first or second circle, it might not work. ;)

    It certainly doesn't seem to be part of stock android. Hopefully Samsung will step in.

    There is a Java setting under Browser settings for running Java on the Tab.

    Hopefully they will patch it soon. Must be a compatability issue with Runscape.

    They might not have all of the libraries on the Tab. The people who used to call Java the universal virus implementation language are still upset that the sky did not fall. ...Or it really could be a problem with Runescape.

    There is a difference between JavaScript and JavaRuntime. Runtime is what runescape uses while webpages with scrolling pictures (for example) is JavaScript. JavaScript is on a ton of phones and doesn't use much power to run. But I still really hope that Google comes up with something because there is nothing Jagex can do other than port it to Flash, which won't happen.

    mashlee im with you. I bought this tab for my mom so she can play pogo on it and amazingly the only game that works is PopIt and quality of it is crap. Does anyone know how to get around this? i really need to be abl to play pogo or this tab is usless for her. If i root it, are there any developer Rom that would play it?

    And why does PopIt work but not the other 120 games on the site..

    Also, armorgames.com keeps going into mobile view even though i have it srt up to Desktop.. Wierd

    Oracle would need to ship a Java plugin. Given that Google and Oracle are > currently in legal action about Android I would not expect such a plugin any > time in the near future.

    this is what mozilla told me... so there, dont expect to play runescape or pogo anytime soon.
