How Can Oracle Make JavaFX More Popular?

The guys at the JavaLobby asked "How Can Oracle Make JavaFX More Popular?", however the discussion seems to be hopelessly slanted towards the desktop crowd and a couple of Android related posts.
I'm quite curious to see what the thoughts of the crowd visiting this blog which mostly focuses on mobile and LWUIT. So I added a poll to the top of the blog, please vote your heart and try not to stuff the ballots ;-)

  1. Provide JavaFX for Android.

  2. Compile natively to all platforms just like QT.

  3. JavaFX Mobile needs to be available. Where is it? Not on Android. Not on iPhone. Not on BlackBerry. Not on Palm Pre. They made a JavaFX for Windows Mobile, but does it come pre-installed on any phones? I don't like having to open a JavaFX icon, select an application, and watching a JavaFX splash screen to use a JavaFX application. That is the wrong way to do it. It needs to look & feel like a native application with an icon in the start menu or wherever I want that directly launches the application WITHOUT a Java FX splash screen. Personally I don't care about Windows Mobile and want to see Java FX on Android and BlackBerry.

  4. JavaFX must become open source to become more popular. Look to the opening of the JDK as a precedent.
