Mobile applications development is attracting more and more developers recently due to the emergence of new mobile platforms such as Android; which is making application development easier as well as its' marketing. All new Smartphone's now support Bluetooth, a popular communication medium for mobile phones. However, cross-platform Bluetooth communication between mobile applications is something uncommon at application level. Traditionally, sharing of media files such as mp3 and pictures between various mobiles of different platforms is simple. However, at application level communication is more complex. For instance a multiplayer game using Bluetooth can communicate only when the game is installed on devices with similar platforms like J2ME.
