Default Cheapest Android tablet or smartphone that supports Bluetooth 4/LE

So, after holding off for over a year, I'm really blown away with my Bump Control and Dual PowerLab

I'm anxiously awaiting the iOS app version of CCS.

Since it's still 3-4 months away, I was wondering what the current cheapest Android tablet or smartphone that supports Bluetooth 4/LE is?

Maybe I should look for a used one. It's ONLY use will be running the CCS for my Bump.

I don't have a google app account though, so maybe it's too much hassle and I should just wait for the iOS app.

Just thought I'd see what others might have done.

FYI - Apple app is 2 months out - end of Feb.

I bought an Astro Tab A737 7" off of Amazon for a tad over $50. Works perfectly. A Google account takes seconds to create.

Thanks Kelly. I waited this long for the Bump & DPL so I guess another 2 months won't be too bad.

BTW, I've had (and still use) a Cellpro 4s charger since 2008 and pre-ordered the original PowerLab 8 in 2009 but they didn't ship until 2010.

Within a year, I suggested that FMA produce a Duo type charger. The Dual PowerLab eventually came, but it took a while (and probably lots of other requests).

Sorry for reminiscing. Back to 2016... er... almost 2017

@ Paul & jrman, Thanks, I'm just going to wait it out.

-Dave
