The closest thing is an instant messaging software program, which WILL communicate with anything that can access instant messaging. It won't be like CSI, but if chat is setup on both ends, you can chat to almost anything!

Please see the "Instant Messaging FAQ" link inside my BlackBerry FAQ below.

I saw the episode. They were talking about "toothing" in a bar. In other words, using Bluetooth to communicate to devices that are active in your area. The device was a Nextel Blackberry.
This was obviously done to fit the story. Just one more thing on CSI that is close to the truth, but not quite!
