Actually, anyone who's cool wants Bluetooth. That's why most of the Sony phones have it integrated. Easy iSync integration on the Mac, and no USB bugs on Windows XP makes Bluetooth even more exciting. How about an Accura automobile with Bluetooth?

I'd sooner do without the integrated camera as it excludes employees of secure facilities from carrying this phone into work.

The good news owlhollow, is that the i550 has an SDIO slot, unlike the i500 that preceeds it. So, it may be possible for Bluetooth expansion in the future. Although a card already exists, my understanding is that there are no Palm 5.x drivers... »

If you can live without the Palm OS, the i600 also has an SDIO slot which should support its version of the Bluetooth card (please verify that for youself).

Of course, if you want the best all-out PDA phone with Bluetooth, check out the Sony Ericsson P910... 588

It's VERY expensive and none of the US carriers are brave enough to carry it (and subsidize its cost). But, it may end up being the phone for me because it has all the features I've ever wanted.

Good luck!
