All,

Thanks for your posts. I've got my PDA connecting to my mobile phones and laptop.

Now, what about other Bluetooth-enabled hardware. I'm thinking particularly of keyboards and earpieces. Has anyone here tried using these with their PDAs? Can someone tell me that it is definitely not possible?

Cheers,
Bryan

I have a few Bluetooth devices: a TDK USB dongle on my desktop, the iPAQ H3970, the Ericsson T39m and the Ericsson HBH20 headset.

Of course I use the headset with my mobile phone, but that's almost all of its use. The reason is simple: sound quality. Although good enough for the mono mobile phone, it is not up to the quality you want from a stereo headset on your desktop or Pocket PC.

I've used it once, including gaming . It works, but you'll feel better with a good headset - until the stereo BT headet makers gets a reality check and drop prices!

I sync my T39m with my desktop (Outlook), and I use it with my H3970 to access the Vodafone GPRS network and send/receive SMS.

Future devices? I really look forward to a cheap stereo headset, and a way to connect the stereo to its five speakers - without the cables going around the lounge .

Thanks for your feedback Mauricio,

I wasn't thinking about the earpiece for listening to music, although that would be nice.
I was thinking about whether you could use it:

1. As you would with your phone, using your PDA as a VoIP client. eg - Xten Networks' X-PRO, its new SIP User Agent (softphone) for Windows PCs & Wireless Pocket PC/WinCE devices. X-PRO can be used to make free IP-to-IP calls using a service such as pulver.com's Free World Dialup...

2. For dictation. eg - ScanSoft today announced the availability of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 7 Medical for healthcare organizations, adding Pocket PC support. So users can now speak into their Pocket PC and have it transcribed when they sync to their PC.

Hi guys,

I am interested in using my HBH-30 Headset with the PC (Win XP) for Netmeeting and other confs. May i trouble someone to point out how to setup a USB BT Adapter on the PC to the BT Headset... or point me to somewhere that describes it.

I already have BT pairing done, and the are profiles for Headset and Voice Gateway, but for some reason while i can get a connection, the isn't any sound from the Headset.

I read somewhere Voice Gateways allows your mobile phone call to be redirected to the PC speakers.

tHanks!

About the BT headset audio I've posted a reply in this other thread about the same topic.
