Default [Q] What is the capability of Wireless N on 360?

I am aware of how the 360 will communicate via low power BT4. But, the 360's Wireless N capability is a surprise.

The most interesting possibility (to me) is increasing the ability to perform standalone functions. For example, if it could connect via WiFi and play music or radio. I hear there are other watch devices with WiFi capability but I know no details.

If anyone has insight to the potential uses or Wireless N please share.

Maybe it will be used for Wi-Fi location?
I think that android wear devices are acting like display & input accessories to other devices and will not handle computations.

It could be for WiFi direct capability allowing for speedy file transfer between phone and watch. Although, I highly doubt it will have wifi on board as none of the other "wear" devices do, I would take the BestBuy leak with a grain of salt.

i want confirmation....
my feeling is that BB fudged up and posted that incorrectly

would love it to be included, but highly doubt it... having wifi would have been a big thing and we would have heard about it already

If it does have Wi-Fi, there is no functionality or way to make it connect. So unless it's totally hidden, this baby is Bluetooth only.
