What is the story with APT-X? I am starting to see bluetooth headphones and other "receivers" supporting this, but I am not finding any information on which phones, mp3 players, or other "transmitters" support APT-X. Can anybody shed any light on this subject?

Would like to know this as well.

No point in getting a new phone if this isn't supported, at least I will have reasonable audio quality through bluetooth if I get a headset + phone with this.

apt-X is a lossless codec for bluetooth audio, MUCH better than A2DP.
If htc (for example) want´s to pimp a phone with it, they have to pay licence fee to CSR. As there are only a few bt receiver with apt-X, they will not pay and implement it (instead they get crappy "beats")
I think, apt-X is only a kernel-driver, no hardware, but not sure about this.
If so, a kernel chef could cook some additional codec in, but this is not open source codec...
I would LOVE an apt-X enhanced bt kernel for my sensation!
