Re: 8830 Radio via Bluetooth Connection to Desktop Internet

Re: Lower the version needed by the apps..

Ok but in my opinion it's all about marketing and not techical support or the ability to forward support. Google does ot worry about users beyond its ability to monitor, track and sell info to buyers.
