A BusinessWeek article “The New Bluetooth: More on the Beam” goes into some of the benefits Bluetooth 2.0 and discusses some of the accessories:

Although Microsoft (MSFT) is a “promoter member” of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group that’s responsible for the standard, Bluetooth support in Windows remains primitive.
Not so with Apple Computer (AAPL). The technology is standard in many Apple Macintoshes and optional in the rest, and with its new line of PowerBook laptops, Apple is the first to use a new, faster version of Bluetooth. If a Mac detects a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse during setup, it will automatically link to them.
