          No
          on other tablets like Nexus - Galaxy
          Android tablets => No.
          Windows RT tablets => No.
          Windows 8 tablets => Yes.

          A tablet you built yourself using a Raspberry Pi or Beagleboard (using embedded JavaFX preview releases) => Yes.

            Lol, now that's a complete list :) I'm going to start listing "stuff you built yourself" too.

            Correct
            The blame is of course to be placed upon Apple and all their rules (yay lets all program Objective C and basically be forced to resort to low level C also, because I say so), and Google for basically ripping Java for their own purposes and thus breaking up what could have been a thing of beauty. Hopefully in a couple of years Dalvik will be as good as the JVM built into Java 5 :/
