iOS 5 on the Apple TV 2 to Support Bluetooth?

Strings buried in the iOS 5 beta suggest that Apple will be activating Bluetooth support on the Apple TV 2 with the next major update. The most obvious use would be to connect with wireless keyboards for text input, but the set-top-box could also be connected to other Apple devices, like the iPhone. It is rumored that Apple will be opening up the App Store to the Apple TV 2, so Bluetooth could also be used for game controllers and accessories.

The Apple TV is due for a A5-based refresh this Fall, which may bring support for 1080p playback.
