IIRC, Android 1.5 has a very limited Bluetooth support, so even if an externat BT dongle is recognized by the aPad, I don't think there's much use for it. When/if we get a Android 1.6 (or later) firmware upgrade, things will change.

Ok... Thanks for the replies. But with all the users here of the apad, I am surprised that no one is experimenting with bluetooth and modding to get it working. I hope there is more development in that regard otherwise I would be looking for a tablet with BT as this is a needed component.

In short you want all BT profiles working then. As I got the impression BT was a dealbreaker for you, I thought you had a special use for it in mind. Then no, 1.5 only supports A2DP and AVCRP (and HSP)With Android 2.1 Bluetooth 2.1 comes along with OPP and PBAP
