    Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP)

    This profile defines how high quality audio (stereo or mono) can be streamed from one device to another over a Bluetooth connection.[1] For example, music streamed from a mobile phone to a wireless headset.

    A2DP was initially used in conjunction with an intermediate Bluetooth transceiver that connects to a standard audio output jack, encodes the incoming audio to a Bluetooth-friendly format, and sends the signal wirelessly to Bluetooth headphones that decode and play the audio. Bluetooth headphones, especially the more advanced models, often come with a microphone and support for the Headset (HSP), Hands-Free (HFP) and Audio/Video Remote Control (AVRCP) profiles.

    A2DP is designed to transfer a uni-directional 2-channel stereo audio stream, like music from an MP3 player, to a headset or car radio.[2] This profile relies on AVDTP and GAVDP. It includes mandatory support for the low complexity SBC codec (not to be confused with Bluetooth's voice-signal codecs such as CVSDM), and supports optionally: MPEG-1 , MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AAC, and ATRAC, and is extensible to support manufacturer-defined codecs. Most bluetooth stacks implement the SCMS-T digital rights management (DRM) scheme. In these cases it is possible to connect the A2DP headphones for high quality audio

    As a new original iPhone owner I would say stick with the G1, that or trade all of them for a new HTC Touch HD or similar. I have had my iPhone for just a couple of weeks and now know it is mostly hype. I can not believe that it does not have full bluetooth capabilities, sync, stereo, wireless gps, etc.. The phone really has some short comings in comparison to a WM6.1 phone.

    None of the reporting websites are linking to it and they aren't putting it in quotes, as if it's a logical conclusion (it isn't; the iPod touch 2G and the iPhone 3G are similarly "different" and all three including the original iPhone are "capable."

    Hope this is release soon, sounds great.
    This might be useful some one told me you can
    buy an Unlock SIMs card which
    You actually put on top of your
    sim card it opens your iphon
    enabling you to use any net work you choose
    and it is legal as any one heard of this
    before?

    according to this apple event, bluetooth will not be available for the 2g phone.
    YouTube - Apple March 2009 Event: iPhone OS 3.0 Preview
    Now either the hardware is different which is what they claim, or they just won't include the coding for activating it. I personally hope it's the latter cause I have a 2g and would very much like to have bluetooth so if it's possible, then maybe sooner or later a jailbreak can settle the issue.

    ^ I think it's just a software issue. Someone will figure it out and add the proper framework

    ^ IF we're lucky and the sun don't shine. . I've been hearing about BT and Apple for eons. IF they include anything, it will be crippled. Apple's not going to give up their stranglehold that easily. If full BT is important, gotta move away from iPhone.
