Does anybody know on what is the current state of the PDA Profile for J2ME? I've heard it would be finished by the end of 2001 and beginning of 2002.

Can someone elaborate what exactly Configurations and Profiles are?
Thanks.

Configurations are "horizontal" grouping of products which try to suit several different kinds of wireless devices that have the same characteristics (memory, processor,...)
Example of configurations:
- CDC (Connected Device Configuration): CDC is suitable for all wireless devices that show characteristics like 32-bit processor, 2 MB RAM, etc.
-CLDC (Connected Limited Device Configuration): CLDC is suitable for all wireless devices that show characteristics like 160-512KB RAM, limited power, etc.
Profiles, however, are targeted are vertical markets, that is, more specific markets. Profiles specialize in very few fields.
Example of profiles:
- MIDP (GUI,persistent storage, networking)
- PDA (GUI subset of AWT, data storage)
- Foundation (no GUI, foundation for other profiles)
- Personal (extends Foundation profile, GUI)
- RMI (RMI capabilities for handhelds)
Basically, configurations cover large domains, while profiles are specific to certain fields.
