Default [Q] Does M support BLE?

Hi.
Please tell me,
I have stock Sony, Orange branded 4.3 android version. Not rooted, clean. I read on Sony device papers that Xperia M supports Bluetooth 4.0. Android supports it since 4.3 . But it seems like it doesn't support Bluetooth Low Energy protocol I care about. Is it possible that another Android version (eg. CM) will support it? Does anybody used it with any BLE device for sure? How is this possible that my phone sees target device but cannot further communicate?

Thanks,
Baftek

Sorry, I know this is quite an old post, but I was now running into the same issue (owning an XperiaM and needing BLE compatibility) and read this:

Long story short, BLE is NOT supported but will be with a future SW update.

Does anyone know if installing CWM will unlock BLE support?
