The applications will run on top of a virtual machine (VM) currently being beta tested by Access for Nokia's 770, N800, and N810 Internet tablets. The Garnet VM beta is available now for free download from Access, with registration. It has reportedly achieved 80 percent compatibility, with wider compatibility expected pending user feedback. Applications run within a QVGA-sized window (configurable as landscape or portrait) centered in the tablets' 800x480 displays.
