Hello, I was just wondering if this can work on any devices, in more particular mobile devices, with java on it?
Once I have my game up and running, I was thinking of porting the game to Cell phones, mainly the ones with a physical key-pad, but also, smartphones, like BlackBerry Storm, Peril, among others

To a degree...it should be possible to use the software renderer on devices that support Java Micro Edition. I once tried this on a real old HP PocketPC and it worked fine. However, those devices are usually too slow to use software rendering, so it's more like a proof of concept than anything. The hardware renderer won't work on such devices no matter what...and even if it would, i doubt that a Blackberry has any support for hardware rendering... ???
However, there's a port to Android (called jPCT-AE, you can find some information about it in the corresponding forum section). It's not a straight port but it's very similar to desktop jPCT, so that it should be pretty easy to port your application to Android once you got it working on the desktop.
