Hi,
Another option is usage of a semi-automated service for J2ME to Android conversion. App is automatically converted, and an expert follows up with optimization suggestions for l&F and performance tuning.
Give it a try – send me your J2ME app – michal.geva@UpOnTek.com, http://www.UpOnTek.com

yeah. the server is indeed slow. But hit the "Get APK" button, go grab a cup of coffee and when you come back, the Save As.. dialog box will be there. :)
