No Java for Apple’s iPhone

There are several discussions around the net right now about the fact that Jobs has stated that the iPhone willl not include Java support. Personally I think this is very shortsighted of Jobs and Apple, but since it seems there will also not be any developer kit based in any language, then their intent is not to exclude Java, but tightly control the applications and content that is available for the phone, similar to the iPod. While they could have benefited from allowing developers and other companies develop content for the device, it seems their approach will be to limit and control the content probably via iTunes downloads or something else similar.
