Question

Posted

When Nokia revealed its flagship Windows Phone 8 devices few weeks back, they mentioned that both the devices has Bluetooth 3.1 built-in. Even now, product specs on Nokia website confirms the same. But I think more good news is on the way for Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 fans as both the devices got certified for Bluetooth 4.0 specs.

Bluetooth 4.0 [url="http://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-Bluetooth-4-0-3-0-and-2-0"]introduces support[/url] for collecting data from devices which generate data at a very low rate. The main intent of this feature, called Low Energy (LE), is to aggregate data from various sensors, like heart rate monitors, thermometers etc. Bluetooth was one area where Lumia 920 fell behind in the specs when compared against iPhone 5, Galaxy S III,etc,. And it may change soon!

This is good news as the WP7 generation totally dropped the ball with MS on this. This is critical lifestyle stuff that iOS and Android have done well at. Better late than never.

I thought it was a bit odd that when Nokia unveiled the Lumia 920 and 820 that they only had BT 3. Maybe they were still waiting for cert for BT 4 and can now bundle it?

it may even explain why they haven't hit market yet.


Come out already!!
