    Hi guys,

    Ive read the specification sheet of the HTC Tattoo, and realized this feature:

    Java MIDP 2.0 - Yes

    Then my question is, why cant I install .JAD nor .JAR files?
    - ASTRO keeps opening the file, as some sort of text editor, and when uninstalling ASTRO, the phone tells me that its an unknown file type.

    I mean, if the phone supports Java MIDP 2, then it should be able to recognize the Java files... right?!

    Cheers

    Where did you get this specification ?

    Android based phones support application written in Java, but they have to be created with the specific development system for Android.
    So no way that you can run a generic Java program on Tattoo.

    unfortunately it is not so easy, they way applications are managed in Android is different and also the way to manage the display.
    Depending on the type of application you would have to do many changes.
