I'm thinking of buying an Asus Eee PC, but I need to be able to

The Huawei E220 seems to be the USB dongle the phone companies are selling
at the moment. Which just works out of the box on the EEE.
I was thinking I could buy a bluetooth dongle, then use a Motorola
Razr as a
modem. Does anyone have any experience of this? if so, does it sound easy
enough to do?
I have not tried this method but I don't see why it would not work
Also, will all bluetooth dongles work with Linux? If not, can someone
me in the right direction of a compatible bluetooth adapter.
There are very few Bluetooth chipsets on the market. They should all work
fine. In fact when I sat with the Linux Bluetooth maintainer in November and
dared to suggest that my laptop had an unsupported bluetooth chipset he
refused to believe it and he was right - user error :)
