Phones that support beacons

As you might know, Bluetooth Low Energy (or Smart) is the core technology used for iBeacon and Eddystone, so it’s critical that as many phones as possible support BLE, for a broad deployment. If a phone says it supports Bluetooth 4.0, it supports both traditional Bluetooth and BLE.

The Bluetooth SIG keeps a list of such devices, and it has become long lately: Bluetooth SIG – Bluetooth Smart Ready products

Of course, Bluetooth needs to be turned on as well, so advise users/customers about this.
