The latest release of Java SE Embedded 6 u21 contains some pretty significant performance enhancements, resulting in up to 3.2x performance over the latest Android 2.2 release on the same hardware.

Check out the detailed benchmarking done by Bob Vandette.

Note that the benchmarks used aren’t even exercising parallel scalability yet. With the multi-core support featured in Java SE Embedded we expect to pull away from Android even further.
