The webOS Wish List: Bluetooth file transfer

by Derek Kessler Mon, 23 Jan 2012 4:45 pm EST

There are a great many things webOS does very well. There are other it's not so good at. And there are some things that my four-year-old Treo running Palm OS could do but are mind bogglingly missing from webOS. High up on that last list is an item that many have been clamoring for in the three year existence of webOS: Bluetooth file transfer.

webOS can receive files over Bluetooth, that's not a problem. The problem is that webOS can't send files back, no matter the device, because it simply doesn't support sending files over Bluetooth. While file sharing utilities like Dropbox have evolved significantly over the years, we've got to admit that when it gets down to business, there's nothing easier or more ubiquitous than a basic phone-to-phone Bluetooth file transfer. Heck, with webOS going open source, there are even open-source Bluetooth stacks with full support for this kind of stuff that could be used.

Have your own thoughts on this wish list entry? Of course you do - the comments are below. Surely you have your own ideas as to what ought be on the webOS wish list, and so we've created a forum thread just for what is sure to be an awesome discussion.
