If this is your target, you don't want to use Java.  (Er, you actually
*can't* use Java).

Instead, look into learning Cocoa and using Xcode to develop your
application.  You can register as an iPhone developer (for free) and
download the necessary tools.

This will provide you with native access to WebKit for any rendering
needs, as well as support for PDF and other features.

I am not sure what services are available on the iPhone (and probably
couldn't discuss them without violating NDA anyway), but I believe
this is the most efficient means to achieving your Mac OS + iPhone

If you wish to support Windows, Linux, etc., you will need to explore
other options.

Good luck,
