Thread Protocol and BLE
The Azure Sphere is too power hungry in a lot of use cases. Thread protocol would be the preferred for a lot of home/business and lighting automation use cases.
It will be great if the capabilities can be extended with use cases to possibly include or use with nordic-semi nrf52840 which has both thread and BLE capabilities ( it also has a 2.4 GHz radio)
BLE is currently supported through USI module.

We're working on adding Thread onto 3620 thru SPI, anyone is interested? No BLE inside our SODIMM board.
Then we'll need Microsoft to build the Thread SDK into OS...
Thank you for the feedback. We added your request to our feature backlog. We will provide updates as we make progress on this feature.
