Google has dropped the Bluetooth and GTalkService instant messaging APIs (application program interfaces) from the set of tools for the first version of the mobile phone OS, Android 1.0, according to the Android Developers Blog. The company opted to drop the Bluetooth API because “we plain ran out of time,” said Nick Pelly, one of the Android engineers responsible for the Bluetooth API, on the blog posting. But the company made clear that handsets using the Android OS will work with other Bluetooth devices such as headsets, for example. Ed note: To be clear, only the APIs are delayed, not the features. This suggests third party apps will not be able to access these frameworks.
