You can make the bluetooth device default - there was question for it in 
QtMoko, but then there were IIRC troubles with ringtone or something like this 
- i dont remember the details. Also you have to switch between A2DP and 
handsfree profile during call. No doubt that it can be done automatically, but 
it would require some coding and a lot of testing...

Maybe the problem now thanks to pulseaudio will be easier, because you can 
quite easily connect sounds sources to sound cards with it.

E.g. my jabra headset automatically connects to QtMoko - so it works the other 
way. I am not sure if other BT headsets can do it too, probably not...

Yes we can have also have QtMoko connect to headset. But without patch it will 
very likely take some time.
