Tiny Bluetooth USB Adapter Dongle for Mini
 
For those that don't want to add the bluetooth module to the mini this seems like a cheap easy low profile way to go. Got good reviews.

Damn, three bucks? I got ripped off at five! :mrgreen:

I'd like to add that dongle is working perfectly under Windows 7 to tether my Blackberry. I was getting disconnects in XP constantly, to the point I stopped using it.

I'm tempted but I still don't have a use for bluetooth (I think). I have an iPhone so I don't think I can sync using bluetooth. So, what else could I possibly do with bluetooth??

by the way i have os x running on my dell mini, if that makes any difference.

Well I just received my tiny BT adapter/dongle from amazon. It is from IOGear. After installing the software/driver, and trying to figure out how to set things up, and finally connecting my Motorola ROKR phone for file transfer....I figured it was too much work for just file transfers. :lol: My ROKR has a microSD card which I can just take out and move to my main computer etc. I don't have any other bluetooth devices, but I would like to find a smaller (than standard) bluetooth keyboard to try out. So far, haven't found anything small, other than the apple one.

i think that just adding the bt adapter internally is a better way to go, that way you can keep the 3 usb ports open for anything else

Or alternatively - using the external port for BT leaves that port open internally for an easy internal storage mod.

I ordered one about 2 weeks ago and the price then was $3.38 with free shipping. Only problem is it ships from China and may take forever to get here. Don't know if it will work but for 3 bucks I'm willing to give it a try.
