Is there a future for the BLE Nano v2 after aquisition?


I’m interested in developing for the Nano but it looks like it’s being discontinued by and it’s unclear to me whether this board will even be available next year.

Does Particle have plans to rebrand the Redbear products or should I expect a new replacement product from particle soon?

Or should I be looking into other low power BLE chips, are there any legit alternatives?



BLE Nano will be discontinued March 2019, we are having internal discussion about the possibility to offer a replacement product and if yes, what it looks like.

We need more time but we will share the final decision as soon as we can, thank you for your interests and patient.


As mentioned on the Particle forums, it would be helpful if the Particle Mesh API supported BLE Central, like the BLE Nano:
