Bluetooth file transfer may be enabled in Windows Phone 8

Windows Phone 8 may let you transfer files via Bluetooth, a posting at the Bluetooth SIG reveals. The profile list mentions that Windows Phone 8 devices will support sending and receiving of objects, but as we have seen with the phones in the past, that doesn’t really tell the whole story. It still remains to be seen what exactly will be the nature of the data that will be allowed to transfer. Bluetooth file transfer is something you’d definitely have on your phone than not, and chances are high that this extra profile may give users that option.
So far the additions/changes from the Windows Phone 7.5 profile list include an update for Audio/Video Remote Control Profile, so you can browse and search media servers using Bluetooth, along with the Control Transport Protocol. OBEX has been added as well. Surprisingly though, as WMPoweruser reports, the supported version of Bluetooth is still version 3, instead of the version 4. The profile can be viewed out here.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
