J2ME: Cellphones, Pagers, PDAs, etc.

Greetings, everyone. I am fairly new to the lj_clients list. I have a new LJ client, but was unsure what to do about it. I have been developing Java code for several years, C++ code for about a decade, embedded systems for a couple of years, but have just jumped into Java 2 Micro Edition in the past week. My first big project is a LiveJournal J2ME client that will run on cellphones (several of the Motorola series, at the very least), some of the RIM Blackberry pages, and various PDAs that support J2ME. While my lack of experience in the J2ME realm almost definitely translates to inefficient and/or not-so-wonderfully architected code, my real problem lies in compatibility and testing. I will be working on a good number of optimizations now that I have a little more experience under the belt, but the only hardware I have to test this with is my VisorPhone. The client runs fine on Sun's emulator, but I would feel much more comfortable if I knew it ran on the Motorola phones, Blackberry pagers, etc. Additionally, I really do not know HOW one installs Java applications on the various pieces of hardware, so my installation instructions are rather vague in those realms.

If anyone wants to help out with developing, testing, and/or documenting this new LiveJournal J2ME client, feel free to contact me. It has been released under the GPL, so all of the source code is available at the above link, as well as the installation files, architecture documentation, and screenshots.
