Follow this guide, works on the release from yesterday as well, my Macbook Air 2011 is working great. It's a workaround for sure, and if you are not comfortable with editing kext files... Run! http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=20015070&postcount=609

From ArsTechnica: Unlike Handoff, the feature [phone calls] doesn’t appear to use Bluetooth at all, and unlike AirDrop, it doesn’t require your device to support peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connections.

My mid-2011 mb air supports Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth 4, yet apple has prescribed that it shall not support handoff. The LMP Version required for handoff, 0x6, is also supported.

I've had this same exact issue with a Bluetooth apple magic mouse. The culprit for me was the rechargeable batteries that I was using. Before I changed the batteries it would constantly lose connectivity and then connect again a few seconds later. It was very frustrating. Did your keyboard and touchpad come with any drivers?
