BlueManager: Showing WP7 Some Bluetooth Love
One of the most fascinating things about XDA is how so many different operating systems and devices have a home here. Whether it’s a fix for the latest Nexus phone or breathing new life into a Windows Mobile device the outside world has long since forgotten, the developers on our site are creators of innovation.
