Quote
The thing is, like many successful platforms, part of what makes Java so dangerous is also its main selling point: it's everywhere. Java's original stewards, the now-defunct Sun Microsystems, built it as an intermediary for cross-platform code deployment, and today its new owners at Oracle brag that Java runs on more than 3 billion devices — the allure is that you only need to write code once and you've got your software running on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs, plus a whole host of other compatible devices to boot.

I'd rather write an App on the Qt framework[^] than I just could think about writing a Java app.
Qt (which initially has been launched by Nokia, by now it is owned by the finnish Digia company) supports - as Java does too - all important operating systems (Windows [mobile, embedded and desktop], Mac, Linux [embedded and desktop]) and some additional frameworks as Nokias Symbian. Because Qt does support the up-to-date C++ standard (C++ 0X AFAIK - corect me if I am wrong) it is no problem to export your business logic into another app - an android app or another application which is being developed with a C++ IDE.

If you ask me - there are enough possible alternatives to Java. The problem is that not many devs have found out about them yet.
