    Neato. I thought it was strange that it was originally listed as only having 3.1 so this is a welcomed update.

    Yes it is, i think Nokia could not give the spec untill the devices where certified, also Bluetooth 3.1 does not exist.

    Bluetooth v1.0 and v1.0B
    Bluetooth v1.1
    Bluetooth v1.2
    Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR
    Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR

    I'm still a bit iffy about this.

    Windows Phone 8 has not been listed to have 4.0 support. Why example ATIV S also has 3.0.

    Excuse my ignorance but what advantages does BT 4.0 have? Why is it a big deal?

    Not sure but, if you were buying a new device, wouldn't you want it to support the newest tech possable ?

    4.0 devices might not be the main stream right now but, 6 months down the line ?

    Ok, I got a minute to break away from work. From the little I could gather it looks like the major differentiating factor for BT 4.0 is that it requires almost no power to be used. Which is why they use it in those nike+ sensors for runners.

    That's all I could gather for now.

    For people who use it a lot it will make difference not consuming as much battery as previous versions, it will also be faster than most versions and the most important it will be compatible with new accesoires that use 4.0 like smartwatches, heart rate monitors and so on.

    4.0 supports low power devices such as the new fitbit which can run 4-6 months before needing a new battery. 4.0 will be important as self tracking becomes a bigger thing among other things.

    From this writeup Nokia actually invented Bluetooth Low Energy, so are we likely to see support for all those BT accessories on the market?

    Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 certified for Bluetooth 4.0
