As the MID profile doesn't seem to provide any API that let a midlet talk to a Java Card Applet, is posible to implement this communication somehow?
Someone know if there is some attempt/project to provide such an API??

The APIs have not been quickly implemented...i'll wager because one of the primary goals of smart cards is security.
however, the jcp is working on a set of APIs that WILL allow j2me devices (so i'm assuming MIDP apps as well) to communicate with such things as smartcards.
the expert group was only just recently formed.
http://www.jcp.org/jsr/detail/177.jsp
knowing the jcp, it'll take about, oh, FOREVER, to get any reference implementation out.
the spec lead is the same person who wrote the first javacard book. maybe if we all write to her and show how much we would love to work on this they'll hurry up :roll:
