I know J2ME is used in palm computers (at least I think it is), and in cell phones. Where is is it being used?

J2ME is just starting to being used. Motorola is going to release a cellphone that is MIDP-compliant in December, and all their new devices from then on are supposed to have J2ME support. Research In Motion's BlackBerry pager is also going to be MIDP-compliant. Both Motorola & RIM have SDKs available for J2ME development.
J2ME really isn't there for the Palm yet. Yes, a port of the KVM is available, but it uses unsupported classes and it can't make full use of the Palm's available memory, so it's not the best example of J2ME yet. Palm is working on the upcoming PDA Profile and so the situation will be better....
Let's see, apart from that EPOC devices are also going to be J2ME-compliant, although they'll be supporting the CDC and not the CLDC....
