HTC have told Android Community exactly which Bluetooth profiles the HTC Hero supports, useful details if you’re considering coding a wireless app for the platform or just wondering whether it will work with your car kit. According to the official spec sheet, the Hero – which we reviewed earlier this week – has support for the usual headset and hands-free profiles, but lacks more advanced ones such as Remote SIM Access.
When we invited questions from our Android Community members, one of first was which Bluetooth profiles the Hero would support. Unfortunately that information wasn’t clear from our review unit, but HTC have got back to use to confirm the list.
The news will come as a disappointment to a minority of users, but for most the inclusion of A2DP/AVRCP will be enough to keep them happy. However the absence of any OBEX-style remote file system exploration is a frustration.
