I just got a samsung sph-i700 phone with pocket pc 2002 and it runs python
2.2+ apps with win32 gui just fine. I got the binaries for it from:

I suppose the question was really more concerned with making use of
the Java support that a lot of new mobile 'phones seem to have these
days. I can't imagine that a significant number of 'phones out in the
European market (and certainly in the Norwegian market) are running
some kind of Windows derivative, but many manufacturers are promoting
their Java application (eg. games) support.

I haven't done any work with jython on mobile phones, but here are
some considerations which I think apply.

1. Java support on mobile phones is usually J2ME - Java2 Micro
Edition.
2. J2ME is a cut down version of Java which does not support all of
the java facilities that jython requires, notably some of the
reflection APIs.

HTH,

P.S. Paul, thanks for drawing attention to xml.dom.javadom in another
thread: I never knew it was there!
