How do I get Java for Mobile device?

Java capability for mobile devices is generally integrated by the device manufacturers. It is NOT available for download or installation by consumers. You need to check with your device manufacturer about availability of this technology in your device.

Some PDAs (Blackberry, Palm), tablets (iPad, Android, Windows Surface RT), smart phones (iPhone, Android), gaming consoles (Nintendo Wii), MP3/MP4 players (iPod), and other personal mobile devices do not support the Java plug-in. See your device manufacturer's website to determine if Java is available for your specific device.
Windows Surface RT: Surface tablets using the Windows RT operating system do not support the Java plug-in. Java being a desktop program cannot be installed as it is not available in the Windows Store.

Developers should refer to the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) for more information about developing Java applications for mobile devices. Java for mobile devices relies on the Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME), which provides a robust, flexible environment for applications running on mobile and other embedded devices: mobile phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), TV set-top boxes, and printers. Java ME includes flexible user interfaces, robust security, built-in network protocols, and support for networked and offline applications that can be downloaded dynamically. Applications based on Java ME are portable across many devices, yet leverage each device's native capabilities.
