JavaPosse discuss Java on iPhone, but Jobs says ‘no Java for you’?

In episode #99 of the Javaposse podcast, the group discussed how the Apple iPhone will be running full Mac OS X, and therefore not only should it be possible to run full OS X apps on the device, but this also likely means that a Java JM will be available. Since this device is more fully featured than any mobile device we’ve seen so far, will this mean it will run SE or ME?

There has been a number of posts and speculation, and a comment from Jobs as well, stating that Java would not be supported. Surely it would be a big mistake to not be able to cash in on the mobile Java apps market that has become so large over the last couple of years? ANyone know for certain whether Java will be supported?
