You need a Mac to do iPhone development, and you can't use Java-- all iPhone development has to be done in Objective-C.

It is not impossible to do this (and not easy), however, it does violate OSX Terms of Service.

I guess you have to spend that $1000 to 2000 to create your first app... This is on top your iPhone and iPad....

No not really, you can get a Mac Mini
http://www.apple.com/macmini/
It is one of the best deals you can get from Apple.
Give it a shot, you wont regret it.
