Why ? Seriously, I think that dotGNU is a great project, but J2ME is way more 
mature and also backed and supported by really big companies. Except for 
properties in C#, I really see no reason NOT to use J2ME but see a lot of 
reasons NOT to use dotGNU on a mobile phone. The very first and most 
important is: we don't support any mobile OS's (at least not in the 
System.Drawing and System.Windows.Forms namespaces, and therefor it would be 
quite useless for you except if you'd like to write some kind of server). So 
while you might be able to compile ilrun for Symbian you can't run any 
graphical applications... at least not until you write a toolkit for it, 
which of course would be very welcome :-)
