Bluetooth is slow as hell. Using Bluetooth would mean that a tablet or phone or laptop or whatever would have to have both bluetooth and wifi on, assuming they even have bluetooth capabilities.

No, I'm talking about using the phone as a simple remote control, sending 0-9, etc. I do this to control my desktop while watching movies now. It works great from many meters away. You don't need any speed for this at all. You're only transferring very small pieces of data. There's no graphics or anything like that. Only signals to which buttons you've pushed. However, using WLAN is the only option when using Synergy, as far as I'm aware. If you want to use a laptop as a mouse and keyboard, then you use WLAN.
