Does Andriod support Bluetooth ?



There are multiple levels to this answer.

As the other commenter pointed out, in general, only certain Bluetooth profiles are supported. So while handsfree is supported, A2DP is not.

Also, Bluetooth is not available for SDK applications. So if you want to add profile support, you will need to make contributions to the Android firmware.
