I found a nice article comparing Bluetooth to 802.11b (aka WiFi) here: [socketcom.com...]

It lays out how they are different, which can be summed up as this: Bluetooth has lower power consumption and range, whereas 802.11b has higher power consumption and range.

Bluetooth and 802.11b isn't used for the same thing, so they don't compete as much as most of the people out there think, Bluetooth is for short services which don't need to transfer large amount of data very fast, and it's much cheaper than 802.11b,
802.11b is used for networking and data transfer of rather large portions of data.
Bluetooth operates whit an radius of 10m, and 802.11b often uses a radius of 100m, There will be a new launch of another BlueTooth version soon , Bluetooth 2, which will faster transfer of data.
