Open Source Android Apps for Developers: AndroidObex (Bluetooth OBEX file sharing in Android)

Description
AndroidObex is an open source Bluetooth OBEX file sharing project for Android platform. Android Dev phone has blutooth chipset, but it only supports few bluetooth profiles, like HFP, HSP, A2DP and AVRCP. Since it uses bluez, we can use RFCOMM protocol. The developer like to use OBEX (object exchange) to send/receive files via bluetooth in Android Dev phone. Therefore, the developer made some changes and wrote Android.mk files for three packages. Then you can run obex applications in Android Dev phone.
