BT & RF
As I understand it, the RF functionality only works if you have the RF Extender unit installed in the "locked away" cabinet.. Without that, you can't use it.
As for BT: I very much doubt you will see a top end device include BT until more manufacturers move away from the crappy IR functionality. I wish more WOULD use BT, but they are still 'shaming' SCE for using it on the PS3 (or peeps that complain about the PS3 not having IR). If you need IR, then search for the IR4PS3. It's not too expensive (cheaper if you have the remote), and takes away the need to create a macro for shutting off and tunring on the PS3. There are alternatives, but I use the above with a Harmony, and it's great.
Regarding the review.. I'm guessing this was at a stand at CES? In which case, you may have had your hands on a test model with older firmware/hardware. Crap I know, but it is possible. Looking forward to the full review in a couple of weeks
