Oh, so is Bluetooth radiation healthier than mobile phone radiation 
now?  Have there been any studies, or different SAR standards, etc. to 
support this claim?

Or are you saying that just based on lower power ratings?

Bluetooth = 1-100mW @ 2.4GHz  (typ. 2.5mW for power class 2)
WCDMA Mobiles = 21-33 dBm = 125-1990mW @ 2GHz

But they are at different frequencies and duty cycles.  Has anyone done 
SAR comparisons between Bluetooth and mobiles?

Still, though, it's a hard sell, just based on "less of the 
(potentially) dangerous stuff."  Then again Coke C2 is debuting in 
Japan, so let's see how that goes.  =)
