Probably a bad idea. Bluetooth isn't known for the world's greatest signal quality.

Technically, that's correct. In practice, I haven't a clue.

You're confusing versions with classes. BlueTooth Class I devices have a 100 meter range, and put off as much radiation as a cell phone. They also burn through batteries like nothing else, and are hella hard to find. Class II (the most common) has a 10 meter range (closer to 12 feet of effective range). Class III is slightly more common than Class I devices, and has a 1 meter range. Typically, you'll only ever see this in things like mice, but with a maximum range of 1m (meaning about half of that range is all you'll probably ever get anything useful from) it's likely worthless.
The versions just introduce different protocols, profiles, and functions. BlueTooth 1.2 is the most common, with 2.0 slowly replacing it.
