HP-like RPN Java calculator for mobile phones

One of them wrote the following to me in an e-mail: "tears almost welled in my eyes out of sheer joy and excitement. I played with the calculator until around 2am in the night".

Well, it may not be that good, but you can take a look here:

Best regards,
