i want to know if books are written on java ME in general. All I see is android development books. Meanwhile, we have blackberry, symbian and other mobile platform. Also, i haven't see anybooks written on other MICRO edition

JME on mobile devices is pretty much dead. The current version focuses on the embedded market; I'm not sure if it's gaining traction there.

Avoid all resources that still mention "J2ME" rather than "JME" - they've been obsolete for the better part of a decade, if not longer.

Thanks for clarifying, I originally thought J2ME was the more recent version (that '2' tricked me).

As TM said, you can use JME on embedded devices.

Controls in washing machines, kettles, car engine management, remote controls, etc., etc.
[Edit:]If you are new to Java® you should probably learn SE Java® first. SE means Standard Edition.
