    This isn't yet possible. There's hope it will be available in 2.0 as the beta includes some low-level additions relating to A2DP.

    No guarantees, of course, that the presence of such code in the beta actually means it will be available in whatever they release, whenever they release it.

    I'm sure you won't be able to miss hearing about it when it's available.

    What's pathetic is that this is really old technology. This should be damn easy to do. My Moto RAZR dumbphone in 2007 already had A2DP.

    Default It works, sort of

    It does send audio out Bluetooth since 2.0 but, two different BT devices I've tried switch from stereo hifi to mono lowfi for no known reason. If you stop the audio by pausing the media, it will switch back to stereo for a while then switch to mono again. For me BT audio is unusable. I've tried both devices on all three PlayBooks in my home. They all do it.

    My cheap but (very usable) Coby CV-290 is working great in stereo with no mono bouncing.
    Panasonic SC-HC05 BT speakers...not at all.
