BB10 Playbook Bluetooth access? Re: Is Bluetooth API available for development?

Hi There,


In BB10, will bluetooth (artificial) restrictions on the PB be opened up so that we can connect to any other bluetooth device we choose, such as medical monitoring equipment? Not having this capability currently has prevented us from developing for the PB so far.

Re: Is Bluetooth API available for development?


Can the classes in btapi be used to create a bluetooth server on the phone? I'd like other devices like my laptop to connect to my phone and use various services (say typing on the phone's keyboard and using that as a bluetooth keyboard on my laptop.).
