    Connecting Intel Edison to android cellphone via BLE(not bluetooth BT)



      I am new to Edison and stuck with BT,BLE and seek your help desperately.

      First of all Can we disable edison BT and only enable BLE?

      Does Edison has on chip BLE?

      How do we differentiate between BT and BLE? How do we confirm which one is active?

      If yes can someone please share appropriate steps to turn on BLE and connect to android cellphone.


      I found this link but it says to develop and android app and to use Groove BLE module explicitely.
