Other than Apple computers are there any other devices on the market that support Bluetooth 2.0?

Windows will support Bluetooth 2.0 devices - when they hit the market. The device must comply with Bluetooth 2.0 and if you use their own drivers (not the Windows drivers) then it will work just fine.

i'm also curious - are there any devices other than apple that have the bluetooth 2.0 hardware?
(not counting windows, since it's an OS not hardware, you gotta get a dongle or something and there seems to be none available)

Which Apple PC comes with Bluetooth built-in? The Powerbooks?

I have an iMac here and use a Bluetooth USB dongle sometimes (I have a few around here).

you can get bluetooth built in to mac minis
same with the old iMacs from years ago
i assume you can with a powerbook.

sorry if i was being rude, but thought the question was more about hardware than about driver availability (that's what i'm interested in knowing)

All new powerbooks and iMacs ship with bluetooth 2.0 hardware standard now, and you can build to order bluetooth on everything else except servers (not sure if it is 2.0 though?).
