    Hi, I just read articles about these bluetooth speakers for MP3 units:
    Samsung announces BS300, BS900 Bluetooth speakers
    Nokia Bluetooth Speakers MD-7W

    I wonder if the IPhone (1.1.2) can play music using either of these speaker-sets, through its bluetooth connectivity..?
    Thanks.

    Simple answer is no.

    You can, however, use an A2DP adaptor, such as the iCombi to connect to stereo bluetooth devices.

    I use one with bluetooth headphones and bludock receiver for iPod.

    ok, the bluetooth chip in the iphone is only restricted via the firmware, it has the capabilities of any other bluetooth chip on any other handset.

    why is noone exploiting this? this would also allow gps...

    there are programers trying to port the missing profiles or something in hackintosh, no succes so far (its been many month now)

    i got tired and bought the icombi adapter cause the cables were ugly on my car stereo

    Also, one must take into consideration that we are not talking about just copying and pasting profiles into a program; Its just not that simple.

    Yes, thats really sad that iPhone being such a gr8 piece of work lacks a feature like A2DP
    found in common cell phones. I wouldnt be surprised if apple come up with their own wireless stereo headphones bearing a big $$ tag !!
    Hope hackintosch beat apple in that first!!

    Yes, it is. I'm pretty sure the bluetooth module is 99% of A2DP and GPS. Only if the module is over one year old will it not have gps capability. Usually companies will restrict features to implement in a newer device or because of licensing fees from the manufacturer but there maybe other reasons. Probably battery life and also support. A2DP is very flaky and uses a lot of cpu power. For gps I bet the iphone has the capability but Apple locked it and didn't include the antenna...this is common on a lot of pda phones. In fact the HTC Hermes is one of them...

    and if gps was possible via firmware why bother with celltower for the fake gps they have now?

    Because it's not an easy job. If it was easy to unlock it would be already done...

    You win. I wasn't trying to make this into argument. Just trying to be clear on what is actually inside the iphone. It has the chipset unlike some phones witch don't even have that. The next Iphone, if using the rumored Broadcom chipset won't have the gps capability at all unless they add another seperate gps chipset.

    yeah I have always been disappointed the iPhone lacks A2DP, but at least there are adapters. Need some advice on which one to get care to help me out plz, anyone? I see so far the average price is like $50-$75 but Jabra has one for like $25. I like quality but that price sounds too good to be true. Does anyone have this and is it any good?
