I remember swapping mp3's with my friends using bluetooth on our flip phones. It was like an early version of s beam.

For Sending files from android 2 android WiFi direct is a better opt.

The spec isn't referring to large files, it's just small data files from fitness trackers and such

wifi direct is the best. almost any huge file can be sent within minutes,

I agree. Nobody uses Bluetooth for file transfers anymore. Nowadays, its used for headsets and streaming music to wireless speakers and that's about it. There cant be much more to add to Bluetooth when wi-fi is considerably faster and more secure

You never know when you might need it as a backup. So don't completely disregard file transfers by Bluetooth...

Nobody uses this technology currently,but when new "wereable" devices hit the market this is going to be the only way of connection.My question is will this be a software update on all current bluetooth LE 4.0 devices or is this a next generation thing.

it wont be the only way of connection. Google glass already has wifi.
