No, the current code only handles communications with serial devices
like opening, closing, configuring, sending (AT) commands, waiting for
any/certain replies, etc. It also implements a GSM (while currently
called UmtsDevice, we're looking for a better name for it) device that
is implemented on top of serial device and handles the specific AT
commands required to establish a connection.

Although I have no idea how bluetooth devices work, I assume there's
some magic that needs to happen and as a result there will be a serial
device that takes AT commands? If so, then bluetooth (NM) device could
be just a subclass of the current GSM device, do it's magic in the
initialization phase and let the GSM device take care of everything

The way things currently work is that we call pppd only after the
serial connection is already established. Can this be done with
bluetooth devices as well?
