Default Adding Bluetooth to 5" tablet

Hi all,

I'm looking at buying a View Quest 5 inch tablet with Andorid 2.1 installed.

It doesn't have Bluetooth but I need to have it. Is there anyway to use a usb mini to usb and add a bluetooth dongle to the tablet?

Or are there any other options:
Budget 100
Needs bluetooth
would like gps
Must run Tourque app

Thanks
in advance

The device wouldn't have drivers for the Bluetooth dongle, so it wouldn't work. I would recommend getting a device that is capable of Bluetooth out of the box.

Finding one? Finding one is easy. Galaxy Note or HTC Titan or HTC Sensation XL. Would easily fit anyone's requirements, unless you have a budget.
