First question I would have is on the new Bluetooth's ability to work with older versions. It's not helpful to adopt the new version for designing an IoT device if the bulk of the smartphone installed base cannot work with them. If there is no backward compatibility, this new version will need to wait for adoption and extensive deployment in new smartphones before it can be useful to IoT device developers.
