Iván, can you elaborate a bit?

Why would it return true for models without bluetooth?
  - is it because the bluetooth control file returns 1?
  - or, hcitool outputs something containing hci0?

I also don't quite understand your suggestion. "hcitool -dev" fails 
here complaining about unknown uption "-d".
