Loc: Finland, on the Arctic Circle
Could be that Apple decided earlier that Bluetooth syncing would drain power too much, that's what they claimed about the 3G chip officially.* And it actually does drain the battery a bit when sending data over it, I've done it sometimes with a short video clip -- half a minute, maybe, shot with the the Razr's camera -- and sending that even drained half the battery. Syncing your address book and/or calendar OTOH probably wouldn't take as much power. Further, what I've gathered I'm guessing BT hasn't quite fully lived up to it's expectations thus far, so we'll see what happens to it in the future. It's good, probably best for low-voltage wireless input gadgets, such as mouse and keyboard, but for anything with more bits involved, I suppose something like Wi-Fi/WLAN, WiMax, 3G or even EDGE is much better. And well yeah, come to think of it, if the iPhone has built in WLAN, why can't it sync via that?<br><br>*Not wanting to make this another iPhone debate(/argument), just mentioning. ;)<br><br>
