Will a BLE sample be available?
As I understand, it will require the module container to run in privileged mode to gain access to hardware devices... Is this supported?
Gaurav Agarwal commented
It already works! Your module should be deployed with the following container create options.
Note that I have also passed the network to be used as "host". For some reason it was important in my case. See if it works otherwise for you.

I think I am looking for exactly the same. Have TI SensorTag to gather temperature data, forwarding this to an Raspberry Pi 3b+ running Azure IoT Edge on Raspbian and forwarding this to Azure IoT hub. Is there any code sample how to access BLE devices in a containerized environment out there?
We do not have an ETA for this item.
Matt Green commented
Any further information on when this will be ready?
Hi Remco, we hoped to have the sample out by now; however we hit some issues around hardware access from containers. These are features that I'm sure others are hitting and need to be addressed first.
Remco Ploeg commented
Any idea when the sample (also on Windows 10) will be provided?
1. Yes, we plan on publishing a sample for the SensorTag device which speaks BLE.
2. Correct, use Container Create Options to elevate privilege of a container.
Answering my own question: privileged mode likely supported via Container Create Options
