Well, you could still use bluetooth phone attached to N800 as a default 
gateway for other devices on the net even if N800 is not AP.

I don't have reference to AP with bluetooth built in but I guess any 
linux based wlan router with usb ports can use bluetooth dongle or phone 
attached directly over USB. Asus WL-500gP is nice (266MHz MIPS CPU, 32MB 
RAM, 2xUSB 2.0 ports, 2.4 based linux kernel) and relatively cheap piece 
of hardware. I'm using it with USB CDMA modem. It can do GPRS with 
attached phone too. Could probably work with USB BT dongle with some
