I want to develop an application for smartphones. The business domain information will be persisted on MySQL Internet server. Some synchronization and caching mechanism may be developed on the client side to deal with wireless connectivity issues. I am considering using XML Web Services for interfacing data from front-end server to client smartphones. I can probably do all the back-end (DB, web services) using Java. However, I have 0 (zero) experience with mobile apps development. And I have the following questions:

What is best technology to use to develop the view and presentation layer?Should I use Microsoft Windows Mobile development tools or J2ME? Is there enough support (JVM) for J2ME on current and upcoming PDAs and smartphones?

Sure there is and should continue to be support for J2ME ... eg IBM Wepsphere Micro Environment ... if you don't fancy J2ME you can still also use Java (see www.superwaba.com.br for example).
Of course, I found a very beautiful couch. Definitely. And this tiny ad:
