The result of research activity in the field of Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANET) has made short to medium range radio transceivers very popular and inexpensive. Most of the practical work and implementations focus on IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN as an underlying physical radio network and this has been used for simulations or testing. In this paper, the authors explore the possibility of using Bluetooth in the development of a Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET) suitable for transmitting data between Symbian OS based Smartphone's. They also analyze the problems that Bluetooth presents when considering existing MANET routing protocols. Then, they present the design of a collaborative application engine by making allowances for the restrictions associated with Bluetooth and finally they review their current progress and consider future work.
