All bluetooth USB dongles that I've seen have to be plugged into a computer.  To do serial stuff, you need a bluetooth serial adapter like these.  There are other products, too, but Sparkfun's seem to be the most compact and widely used.  And no, I don't know why they are so much more expensive than regular USB dongles.
