Bluetooth device support

I purchased a Jabra Stone2 bluetooth headset which has Advanced Audio (A2DP) and Remote Control (AVRCP) profiles. I need to listen to streaming radio.

 

I am able to connect the bluetooth device to my 9800 and this operates perfectly, but when I connect to the device with my Playbook, Playbook OS reports that after pairing that "No services available on the device"!

 

Is this the fault of the Jabra Bluetooth device or is the Playbook OS not currently capable of supporting this type of device? 

 

If so, what is the priority and timeline of a fix?

The Playbook for now does not support anything else but bridging ,and tethering using Bluetooth, we are all hoping that soon that will change and that we can use Bluetooth for listning to music

Re: Bluetooth device support

Actually it also supports keyboards, and mice, via Bluetooth, but rat-7 is correct that audio is not supported for now.
