RIM roadmap confirms Bluetooth 4.0 coming to BlackBerry 10

There has been a ton of news coming from BlackBerry 10 Jam Americas today, and we now know that Bluetooth 4.0 is coming as well.  In RIM’s detailing of the BlackBerry 10 Native SDK, there is mention of new Bluetooth API’s and profiles.

One of the new profiles mentions low energy Bluetooth as well as Serial Port Profile (SPP) and Generic Attribute Profile (GATT). The low power Bluetooth stuff is what is exciting, as those profiles are needed for Bluetooth 4.0. So if we connect the dots on this one, BlackBerry 10 should include Bluetooth 4.0 as one of its features.
