There is a Maemo project that deals with Bluetooth called "give" that
might help you? Just a guess on my part if it would.

Since the two of you are also listed as the team behind GPE Calendar, I
hope you would not mind a question on that application?

Would an updated version of Calendar be in the works that supports an
alarm powering on the N800 and perhaps flashing the led?
I have seen it referred to as the built-in alarm system, and without
that power up option, it is real easy to miss an appointment, a show
stopper in fact.

The Maemo application, Seqretary, has this feature, so I would figure
yours would also be able to add this very needed feature.
