A Palm is not particularly underpowered, and the performance of the 
current J2ME implementation might surpise you. 

I run SatTrack against a list of 40 some satellites on a 900MHz PII, 
and it literally doesn't even notice the CPU load. I can't imagine that 
tracking *one* sat at a time on a Dragonball at 20 or 30 MHz--even in 
Java--is that big a deal.
