Talking Android and Java, match made in heaven?


Hi,

Okay, so, a local store has this Android tablet for sale for E 89 I guess some 70 $ if calc serves. Now, I need something mobile that can run Java Applets. Can Android do this? I Wikipedia is to be believed, Java seems to be a core piece of Android...

Just before I get out and get me some piece of toy I may not be able to use

Tnx

Thor

The short version is that android does not support Java applets. I do not have the device, so I might be wrong about it.

I've read about this technology (Android) before, and decided that I should stay very far from it. It is not linux and it is not pure java.
