 Hi all,

I'm thinking of getting a T-Mobile G1 as a replacement for my existing
Windows Mobile PDA. So far as I can tell it will have everything I
want bar one, namely TomTom. I have bought TomTom Navigator for the
PDA and also pay for a Traffic subscription.

Since I'll only have one tariff with unlimited data (on the G1), what
I'd like to be able to do is use the G1 as a bluetooth modem that the
PDA can use to download the live traffic data.

Is there support in Android for networking over Bluetooth?
Alternatively, is there and application I can get that will do this?
Lastly if the answer to both is no (and given that I am a software
developer by trade), would this be possible using the appropriate

Thanks in advance for your help and advice,

 Join the club.

Unfortunately it's not possible with a stock G1 due to limitations in 
the firmware, but hopefully T-Mobile will see the light soon.
