If you would like to try this, you will have to set your Edison to receive internet connection through Bluetooth. I have never tried to do this, however I found a few links that might be of your interest:
If you go this way, you might also find issues with the API as it was intended to be used with the Wi-Fi interface, and using the Bluetooth interface might cause it to misbehave.
I believe a better option would be to create an AP with your phone and have the Edison connect to it. This way the Edison would get a "regular" internet connection and most of the project would remain the same without losing the mobile aspect of it (which I believe it's what you're going for).
