Sending/receiving bytes to an external device via bluetooth

Is it possible write a program to communicate with an external device via
bluetooth using visual basic .net (of course for windows xp sp1 or later)?

I tryed to read MSDN library about System.Net.Sockets.Socket, but I'm not
expert enough to see if it supports bluetooth connections. Can you please
tell me if it does? If not, could you please show me how to wrap bluetooth
functions in winsock api using VB.net?

Thank you.

Thank you, but I'm not sure this is what I need.

I'll try to be a little more specific. My problem consists of writing an
applicaion that runs over a pc, precisely a Media Center, not a smarphone,
nor pocket pc.

My collegues (electronic engineers) will engage in projecting a home device
(external harware) bluetooth-connected and they must make sure it will be
supported by Windows XP SP1 Bluetooth.

My task is to make all the PC-side work. Unfortunately I've never worked in
C++, so I wish it's possible to make in VB.Net.
