It is paired, no problem with that.  I can see all the icons but when I want to launch them it doesn't do anything.

Yes, both. I can see all the icons and actually I can see the red star when I receive an email on the tablet but I can't open any icon (email, calendar, tasks, memo pad...).

See here:

You've done step 5

I wonder if removing bridge from the phone /bluetooth profiles and starting over will make a difference.  See that link for more things to try.  I know you said it pairing works fine, but its worth a shot.
