Bluetooth support status

My experiments and researches on the Internet show, that on many Android devices the Bluetooth stack is broken. Looks like the Bluetooth support will stay a kind of "optional", because various Bluetooth connection issues are still not solved for many devices by Google or device manufacturers.

On my test devices the Bluetooth multiplayer works for a while. And then, from one point, no connections can be established any more until the devices gets re-paired or even worser: rebooted. This is not specific to Battleship Sci-Fi, other Bluetooth enabled apps behave the same :(
