Programming on a cellphone?

Sorry about the cross-post (Java).

I'm currently under the impression that many/most cellphone games are programmed in Java. I'm familiar with VB, C++, HTML, and I've even played around with Scratch (

What I'm looking for is a way to program cellphone game ON the cellphone itself. I don't have alot of free time on a PC to program something for transfer to a phone, I want to program directly on the phone.

Is there [italic][b]any[/b][/italic] option for this? I'm open to any and [italic]all[/italic] suggestions. I'd even be willing to buy a treo and start writing PALM programs if necessary.

Any ideas are appreciated!

    So, I've seen some software out there, like MobileBasic, which is supposed to work on Java-enabled phones. My Motorola Q9C is not java-enabled by default, but I have IBM's J9 ('emulator?') and Esmertec's JBED, but I'm not sure if that is compatible/acceptible.

    I've tried loading Scratch [url][/url] which I thought was java-based, but technically speaking it's not.

    There IS a Ubuntu version, so I was going to try to load Ubuntu onto my device, but then I lose WindowsMobile. Could I maybe run Ubuntu from a storage card as a dual-OS type situation?

    Any thoughts? I know it's crazy, and I should just buy a $300 netbook, but the phone is just so much more portable... Just drop it in your pocket and go. Even the smallest laptop is the size of a book.

    Thanks for any help at all!!!

    Anyone? Any ideas? I've been just writing lines of code on the phone and then transferring/compiling on my desktop phone, but that's very time consuming since I only get to use the desktop PC every month or two.

    ANY ideas?

    There is an Mobile Integration inside netbeans(Java) which allows you to program certain devices with java. It's been a year ago since i last used it , but it has certain bugs. I have no idea if they are already cleared out now.
