Complete list of HTC EVO Bluetooth profiles found in hidden setting

Evo-bt-profiles If you've ever wondered which Bluetooth profiles the HTC EVO supports, you may have been less than satisified with HTC's official information: "The phone supports . . . Bluetooth Headset, Hands free, A2DP, and FTP, as well as other standard profiles."

We know that non-rooted Android doesn't natively support the HID, DUN, and PAN profiles (unbelievable, I agree), but it would still be nice to know a bit more about these "other standard profiles," don't you think?

Fortunately, all of the EVO's supported Bluetooth profiles are listed right on the phone. I was messing around with a field trial setting the other day (a carryover effect of all the rooting and flashing I've been doing over on Streak Smart) and found the screen you see here. In addition to identifying the Bluetooth chipset without the need for a teardown, the screen shows the full list of supported profiles: A2DP, AVRCP, FTP, HFP, HSP, OPP, and PBAP.

It would have been much more exciting to see HID, DUN, or PAN listed but simply disabled there, but at least no one has to wonder what "other standard profiles" means anymore.
