Bluetooth file transfer a hot button issue at Microsoft’s User Voice site


Perusing Microsoft’s new Windows Phone User voice site, it struck me that, besides the regional issues such as support for Persian and Bing Services worldwide, it seemed Bluetooth File Transfer is a feature under high demand for Windows Phone 7.

Complains range from this being a feature even dumb phones support, not being able to send files to Bluetooth printers to having to waste limited and expensive 3G data to send files via email when two people are standing right next to each other and short range transfer over Bluetooth could be used.

The lack of the feature appear to particularly perturb Nokia users, who in less developed countries rely on this feature as a loose P2P network constantly.

Of course the modern solution is file transfer over the cloud, but it is clear that this answer is not for all.
