Java for PDAs is a portable choice and provides plenty of standard APIs for new technologies. Thus, one might say Java is a good choice for developing applications for PDAs.
However, it all depends on your applications' requirements. If you need functionality that is only available through native APIs, or if performance is the biggest thing, you might want to fall back to the native language (i.e. C++).
Regarding J2ME resources, a fellow 'rancher Fred Grott maintains a nice resources page.

On the good side if you develop for PDAs the same application works with minimal porting efforts for smartphones as the same pen input requiremnt is there..
