It would only be beneficial if bluetooth takes off, in which case I don't think it would take the evil empire long to license the technology for themselves. Yeah, they'd be a year or two behind, but what else is new? Right now if I had a bluetooth enabled palm, it would be pretty worthless for practical applications, although it would be a fun toy.
