Ultra low power (ULP) RF specialist Nordic Semiconductor ASA announced that Hong Kong-based Arduino specialist, RedBear Company Ltd, has developed a Nordic nRF8001 Connectivity IC-based single board Bluetooth Smart Arduino solution called 'Blend' that supports over-the-air updates on-the-fly from Bluetooth Smart Ready smartphones and tablets (via a Bootloader that will be available at the end of June).

By eliminating the need for an extra, separate shielding board, RedBear says the Blend is both smaller and up to half the cost of previous two-board Arduino Bluetooth Smart solutions, while also being simpler and easier to use because it requires no additional wiring or soldering, or indeed potential troubleshooting if the shielding board doesn't function as desired.
