Bluetooth 4.0: what it means and why it could be a gamechanger in the iPhone 4S

this will be offically working in the new iphone 4ssss in 2014 and will change everything again for 1000 euro. Funny that apple are claiming for the use of this bluetooth in the iphone 4s when the phone is the worst bluetooth device around,not being able to send a single pic or tune through bluetooth

Completely agree......I sold my iPhone 4 because I couldn't share photos or videos that I had shot on it with other family members using other phone types......I e-mailed Apple daily for weeks asking for the capability - with no acknowledgement at all.......and now they want to introduce this.....what's the point??!! I moved to Android......

Are you kidding? Please tell me what the Bump app does NOT do?
Can send photo/music/contact/app/social network info/calendar events all over bluetooth, and with any device (ios, android, etc). You are NOT sending videos through bluetooth (wait days for that transfer to finish), so what does your bluetooth sharing allow?
Furthermore, what are you talking about 2014? The article says the 4S has this capability right now...as in at launch in 2011. Both NFC and BLE need to be proven in the field, so let's leave that to fate shall we?

Yes bump could work but how much brain power do you give isheep credit for?! Two of them there clashing their iphones off each other in caveman fashion to work the bump app will always result in broken screens!

Why would you want your payment system to have a larger range? HURR DURR let me just broadcast my clearly secure payment info 50m around me. There is absolutely no way that it can ever be decrypted..

The crazy thing about the BT4.0 hype is that ANT+ has been doing this for years. Check out devices from Garmin, Adidas, Timex? All using low power wireless solutions.
