Bluetooth Low Energy/ BLE / Bluetooth Smart

Does the Kindle Fire developers kit support Bluetooth Low Energy apps/development? If not, when might it? Android does not have their BLE compatible dev kit out.

Hi spbhhi, Currently we do not support BLE apps in Kindles. We will update our App Distribution portal once it is available. Please stay tuned for updates. Thank you.

Hi, There are no Bluetooth LE APIs exposed from our platform for 2nd or 3rd Gen devices. Android brought the BLE profiles into the platform with API 18 (4.3). The Kindle Fire HDX and new Kindle Fire HD (2nd gen) devices are API 17 (4.2.2)
