    With bluetooth 4.0 being officailly released soon, will our phones bluetooth be upgraded?
    It might be a stupid question, I just dont know if the upgrade is software based or a hardware upgrade? :thinking:
    From what I have read, it is very energy efficient and could be a big boost in battery life for those of us who use bluetooth frequently.

    Thanks! :D

    If it's a SW only upgrade, then it's possible...however, Google has shown precious little interest in bluetooth, we still don't have BT dialing, so I'm not going to hold my breath. ;)

    I'm pretty sure that it's hardware based.....actually yea it definitely is.

    It would have to be strictly hardware based... every version of bluetooth is faster than the former. That means that it is similar to upgrading your wireless between 811b/g/n.
