    Okay with consideration to the number of Nike+ sensor topics comming out and the fact that we now have an integrated BT chip and the fact that apple might be planning something special so that we could use our stereo bluetooth headset...........this thought just hit ma head......would it actually be possible to send audio signals to a headset as well as receive info from a Nike+ sensor all at the same time.....??

    Curious but an intelligent question dont you think

    This has been posted before, actually, if you search for Bluetooth and iPod. The problem here is that there's no drivers for the BT at the moment available, plus you'd have to get A2DP drivers to do BT, if the chip itself's actually capable of multipoint so it can transmit to a headset and the sensor as well.

    It's connected wirelessly using BT-Like transmission, BT-like means that it use non-standard 2,4GHz BT signal (that what i heard), that can be generated by BT chips, similary as some 2,4GHz wireless mouses ;p Nike+ was first sell for iPod nano with additional receiver, new touch got this receiver bulid-in , this includes BT Chip:>
