If your phone only supports midlets then it cannot support a full apple emulator feasibly. A swing application cannot be easily converted to a jad style app because the phone will not have the full java run time to support it.

I understand this, but a GameBoy emulator runs on it, with about 3/4 speed and no sound. Would be neat to see apple II on it.

I would totally port Jace, but there is already a great Apple // emulator (cAndy Apple) for Android that seems to work pretty well. I would have to consider what a Jace port could offer beyond the current state of the art. Unless the idea was to provide the mouse and cheat features. It might be feasible without a lot of rework, but I haven't had the chance to observe the behavior of multithreaded applications on a droid yet -- it's on my to-do list.

Hi-res works good, you can read text printed on it. Only text screen I looked at was 40 column Apple //e at startup. (it looked like an e, but the docs say it is IIc ROM default).
Not practical for many uses on my phone, but I can show my friends my hobby computer projects from my phone.
