    Yes, what about Bluetooth on Treo 270?

    Does anyone know if it is feasable and if it is could we expect it in the near future?

    Somewhere on here there was a topic on a CF expansion sleeve for the 270. I don't remember if it was supposed to work with non-memory modules, but it's possible. That's the only way I can see that's likely.

    Out of curiosity, what do you have in mind to use Bluetooth for with a 270? Most people's interest in Bluetooth on a 90 is to go online wirelessly (by connecting to a separate cell phone); the 270 can already go online on its own.

    Bluetooth would add endless functionalities to a Treo 270 or 300, from the obvious to the not so:

    - Headset
    - Printing a document
    - Exchanging information
    - Receiving information (i.e. in a Trade-show or in a mall)
    - Local network to share data
    - And more

    Bluetooth would open Treo to the outside world, as most computer / communication devices have now the tendency to be bluetooth enabled.

    Your giving into the hype

    Windows XP doesn't even support it, are there even any computers shipping with Bluetooth built-in? I think the only phone manufacturers that have Bluetooth are Sony-Ericsson and Nokia, and that's only a couple of models.

    It would cost a fortune to do what you want to do. Bluetooth is still too imature. A headset for $99?? Yikes.

    As with GSM or GPRS, the USA seem to be behind technology.

    In Europe or the Middle East, you can find non-branded Bluetooth headset for as little as US$25.

    A friend of mine bought one last week for his Nokia phone.
    Works like a charm!

    Microsoft recently announced that they will support bluetooth in the near future. (XP update within 3 or 4 months)

    HP announced bluetooth on several printers.

    Saab is the first car manufacturer wich integrates bluetooth in their new cars. Exchange adress book with navigationsystem, sync agenda/e-mail etc.

    So I would like to see bluetooth available for Treo 180/270, even with a CF expansion sleeve.
