Does a bluetooth module for Mbot need a dongle to connect with a computer/pad?

Here’s the information provided by Makeblock tech support:

The Bluetooth function for mBot is basically only made for mobile devices, and we don’t recommend our users to connect mBot to computers via Bluetooth. Due to that there are different Bluetooth modules and protocols for the Bluetooth module on different computers, we cannot support all. So usually we don’t suggest our users to connect mBot to computer via Bluetooth. If you really want to connect computer with mBot wirelessly, you can use a Makeblock Bluetooth dongle.
