Depends what kind of handheld you're talking about. For PocketPCs or Symbian devices, Java is definitely an option, it's here now. For Palm devices it's just starting to be viable: you really need to use a special product like IBM's J9 or esmertec's Jbed to do serious work. Sun's Palm solution right now, MIDP4Palm, is simply not good enough.
