Bluetooth Low Energy coming to select Nokia Lumias via software update
It looks like Nokia's Windows Phones have some secrets to spill in a future software update. At a gathering in Hong Kong, as reported by BlogJack, the company said that Bluetooth LE support (part of the 4.0 standard) will come to the Lumia 520, 620 and 720. Strangely absent from that list are the Lumia 820, 920 and the 925 -- all of which are powered by Qualcomm chips that support BT 4.0 at the hardware level. We're also not entirely sure if this update is a part of the general Windows Phone update that Microsoft plans on issuing later this year or whether it's specific to the "Amber" update that's tailored to Lumia devices. We've asked Nokia for further details, and we also plan on getting some face-to-face time at its unveiling of a whole new Lumia this Thursday.
