Hi
Here are a list of projects that may seem interesting to you.
1. Traffic Cam MIDP Application: Write an MIDP Application that interfaces with a Server Application ( you have to write this) that fetchs images form a site that gives you pictures from Traffic Cameras around that place that you stay. This is very simple appication and can easly be implemented provied you can get a site that provides you with Live Traffic Cam Images from your locality. I am working on someting similar but currently I am working on reducing the size of each PNG image ( 30Kb) I have to somehow convert this truecolor PNG image to a 256 color image, that should reduce the size of the image.
2. Map Viewer : This application provides you with maps of locations, you just have to provide either the Post Code or the street name. This application also involves writing an MIDP application and a server application that fetchs the data from another site that provides you with the required maps. This application is a bit more difficult since you will have to write your server application to do a lot of HTML based screen scraping. Unless ofcourse you maange to get a Web Service that provides you with the required information ( that is nice idea - I have to look into that myself - just thought about it ). You can provied additional features in your midp application like , Saving Images, Zooming into Maps, Providing an Satellite based Ariel View of that particualy map section being viewed ( provied the site that you are screeen scraping provided you with an Ariel Image ). If you do some searching around on the net you should definately get someting sites.
3. Telnet MIDP Application : Same design as above. The only problem with this application is that a telnet command can generate a lot of output that it may be difficult to read on the Mobile Screen.
4. Windows Remote Desktop: Mobile screens are really very small for this. You can probally try it out on Pam. Moreover i have no idea about the protocol used to connect to a Windows Terminal Server.

If you have any more ideas please let me know. It will keep me busy for some time.

Just some quick comments on this one:
1. Borland has done some screen scrapping from mapquest.com for you. They offers the screen scrapping as a SOAP Web services. They even has a sample MIDP client usiang the kSOAP library.
http://bdn.borland.com/article/0,1410,28836,00.html
2. Microsoft MapPoint.NET is a much more capable GIS Web Services. But you need to do some work to make kSOAP work with it. In particular, MapPoint.NET requries HTTP DIGEST AUTH. If anyone wants to try this project and release it under GPL, let me know. I have some code that you might find useful.
