Well, you can "beam" images from one mobile using Bluetooth. If both devices support OBEX (which stands for OBject EXchange), it's fairly simple. Otherwise you may have to do a little coding of your own.

The main thing is that the 2 devices have to be paired so that the receiver will accept input from the sender. This is normally limited because if you thought PCs had security problems, think of what the consequences of walking through a crowded airport with an open receiver would be!

Beaming is just sending an object such as an address book entry from one device to another. I think the original beam was an infrared light beam on Palm devices.

On object, here's a small link: http://www.google.com .

I think there's a Java JSR for OBEX, but I'm not positive, since OBEX is a protocol and not just for Java.

Unfortunately, the Android phones don't support OBEX yet. Android's Bluetooth stack is pretty weak.
