    You may also have a look at the SourceForge project BlueMGF, which is a framework to create Java multiplayer games for mobile devices via bluetooth.

    I tried playing the combat game using 6680 and N73 but could not get the two phones to connect over bluetooth.

    Unfortunately, the implementation of the Bluetooth protocol may differ from one device to another. Even if the framework works greatly in pc emulators, it may get stuck at some point with real devices.
    The framework is open source and is also shared through the SourceForge CVS repository. Anybody who wants to improve it is really welcome!
    Please, send me an email if you want to become a developer of the framework and extend its features.
