Mobile phone software?

I got a lovely Sony Ericsson W810i mobile phone for Christmas. It runs a version of Java and it can be linked up to the PC. I'm after a scientific calculator program for it and any other interesting goodies (e.g. file transfer, telnet). There isn't one on Sony Ericsson's site. Does anybody know of a good safe site for downloading free Java programmes?
The phone also has blue tooth. Has anybody linked a blue tooth keyboard to this phone?
Thanks,
Chris.

This site:

Has a range of Java goodies - including one for the SonyEricsson 's to use the Bluetooth as a remote control!
Also,

Actually it implies that they aren't known to do anything dodgy.
The distinction may seem minor, but there is a pretty big difference.
Worth ensuring you compare checksums, virus scan etc. Also don't forget the system restore point setting, and backups too.
Not to be a scare-mongerer, but better to be in a false state of insecurity than a false state of security methinks. Wink
