Polaroid Wants More iPhone Bluetooth Access -- So Say We All?
TiPb received a note from Andy at Polaroid concerning a campaign they're starting encouraging iPhone users to file a feature request with Apple for Bluetooth file transfer access. Polaroid wants this for their Pogo Instant Mobile Printer, but TiPb thinks it's a grand idea for better Bluetooth access of all sorts.
I'm pretty sure we don't have stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) because, well, it's not very good quality and Apple doesn't do "not very good quality" (outside of MobileMe launches, mice, and corporate printer support, of course), but how about letting that gorgeous Apple Bluetooth Keyboard (or any Bluetooth Keyboard) hook up with the iPhone?
There's a full range of Bluetooth functionality we haven't gotten on the iPhone yet. Sure, engineering talent is limited and Apple no doubt has a list of priorities based on maximum results for minimum dev time, but even Apple's been known to re-prioritize based on customer feedback, so if this is something you want, let Apple know! (Just don't ask for copy/cut and paste, MMS, video recording, Push Notification, and everything else at the same time, b'okay?)
