Completeness of Libraries:

.NET may have a bit of advantage there, even though it's strongly based on the Java-clone C#, but wxWidgets is opensourced, meaning it will be easier add functionality to it in the near future... not that it hasn't grown much recently...
For a platform which is supposed to be cross-platform (it actually only uses one platform: the JVM), Java follows a least-common-denominator approach, so I'd it say turns out to be the less complete from the 3.

Speed:

wxWidgets can be built on top of a .NET environment when under windows. Otherwise, keep in mind that it wraps the OS API pretty much the same way MFC does, so I'd say it's pretty much equivalent to .NET.
Java == slooooooooooooooooooowww............... (Java GC sucks :wink: )

New Hardware, PDA's, etc.:

Take a good look at www.wxwidgets.org. The number of covered platforms is expanding :)
Of course, Java still is a first choice, say, for mobiles and such.
