Bluetooth 4.0LE coming to all WP8 Nokia Lumia devices
posted by Michael H. / Nov 13, 2013, 8:37 PM
Nokia has already added Bluetooth 4.0 LE support to the Lumia 520, 620, 625, and 720 with the "Amber" update; and now, Nokia has confirmed that the rest of its Windows Phone 8 devices will be getting the same support with the upcoming "Black" update. The full support page answer reads:
Unfortunately, there is no word on when the "Black" update will be rolling out. All we know right now is that the Nokia Black software will be loaded on the Nokia Lumia 1520, but Nokia hasn't even announced the release date for that device yet. The Black update is expected to also include camera improvements, the new Glance feature, and more.

All other WP OEMs are going to have a tough time trying to compete with Nokia. I assume it's safe to say, there's no competition at the moment.

Nokia is to WP8 as Samsung is to Android. Nobody can top Noia's Lumias. Just saying.

The answer is that Nokia included Bluetooth 4.0 hardware in virtually all of their WP8 devices, but Microsoft was lagging behind, and WP8 OS software driver only supported Bluetooth 3.0 (kinda sad). Now that Microsoft is going to own Nokia's D&S, those kind of delays will end up costing them instead of Nokia (which will be focused entirely on network related business).

I am disgusted with Nokia for not stating a release date for the Nokia Lumia 1520 and the Lumia 2520. What the hell are they playing at!! I hope Elop accidently sits on a cactus!!
