    Does this mean that there is no Java Virtual Machine in the Hero? I thought Android Apps were written in Java so need a JVM to run.

    Java and Wifi tether apps are built into the MoDaCo rom with some other goodies, not in the official release.

    Android is a linux based OS with the apps written to run on the Dalvik virtual machine. Dalvik is not Java, but it is possible to compile a subset of Java to dalvik bytecode.

    It would be great if google supported more of Java than it does today so we could get most Java (and JavaFX) apps to compile and run.
