Google Commits To Better Bluetooth On Android

One of the key weaknesses of Android is its implementation of Bluetooth. Built on support for profiles is weak and has led to patchy functionality across Android devices as different OEMs implement different flavours of Bluetooth and its profiles. 

That is all about to change as Bluetooth 4 with Smart Ready support has been promised for the next version of Android ( the as yet unannounced Key Lime Pie). 

Consistency of Bluetooth will allow accessory manufacturers to better support Android, however the patchy availability of OS updates for phones means that this will probably only be an advantage for those buying new phones in the future.
