Since this isn't really an answer to your problem (but it might be!) I'll leave it as a comment. What do you need this for? Would Dropbox do what you need? – Bryan Denny Sep 13 '10 at 19:49
@Bryan Dropbox wouldn't help if I have no internet connection – Jader Dias Sep 14 '10 at 14:23

Bluetooth File Transfer provides OBEX FTP and OPP for android. It allows you to send a file via bluetooth to an android device or any other devices that implement these bluetooth profiles.
