I forgot to add bluetooth to my new tablet PC. Options?

by budi83 / July 17, 2008 6:14 AM PDT

I forgot to add bluetooth to my new tablet PC. Even though it won't ship until the 23rd, somehow it is impossible for HP to help me out and add the $25 option.

I want to get GPS at somepoint.

should I get a USB/expresscard gps unit or bluetooth unit then add gps to that.

Besides headphone/cellphone use, is bluetooth worth it.
