This should be moderately easy, but requires hacking/extending the
Dock on the Newton side a bit. Technically speaking, the
communication is in all cases done over an Endpoint, and creating
such an endpoint for serial and for Bluetooth is very similar. You
tell the NewtonOS which service (serial, IrDA, Bluetooth, TCP) to use
via the connection parameters in the endpoint, and the rest happens
automatically. The only thing which is a bit tricker is to tell the
BT service to which device to connect. Paul's "Dock TCP/IP" would be
a good start to get this implemented.
