The Windows 8 Bluetooth stack has just passed through the Bluetooth SIG certification. The details reveal the usual collection of HID, A2DP, PAN and OBEX profiles, which should reassure Windows 8 buyers that they will not be losing functionality.
What is of course more relevant to Windows Phone users is that Windows Phone 8 is expected to feature very similar drivers to Windows 8, suggesting we may see more of the same profiles on Windows Phone 8 also. Profiles like Object Push are of course much in demand and long overdue on Windows Phone.
All should be revealed in a few days however after the Windows Phone summit on the 20th next week.
In the mean time, see the certification at the Bluetooth SIG here.
