I dunno, but I would certainly love it. For some reason, Amateur equipment seems to wait until technology is almost obsolete until incorporating it. 

That's why we still see serial ports on equipment while finding a computer with a serial port is about as common as parallel ports, why radios like the IC-7610 still have the incompetent and ridiculous and hardly functioning CI-V ports. And old school USB.

Bluetooth also has the very important advantage of being almost immune to the RFI problems that plague the Amateur radio-computer world.
