bluetooth USB dongle + BT earphone as PC microphone


I'm planning to get the Plantronics M3000 bluetooth headset for my cell phone. The question is, if I add a BlueTooth USB dongle to my laptop (I have been looking at the BF-8011), can that combo then also be used as a microphone/headset for the Laptop? I'd like to use that investment also for skype calls.

Has anybody done that? Are there differences between the dongles and headset/dongle pairs in term of capability?

Thanks for any hints and pointers,

mlp
