  1. Jay,

    – No support for Bluetooth headsets….yet. Bluetooth integration is coming with the next release of the Glass 1000.

    – No PoE — standard power adapter.

    – Rooting? There is this quote on their website (http://cloudtc.com/technology/hardware), “We view ourselves as a software company. We produce phones as a delivery vehicle for our software.” Not sure if it’s frowned upon. Let me check………
