I'm trying to get a nordic 8001 eval board for an embedded application. I'v got an iPhone app shell up and running that discovers/connects to Bluetooth devices in the area. I've been able to discover BlueRadio,BlueGiga, Panasonic radio modules. I'm also able to discover the Nordic 8001 sample board fron the $99 eval kit, with the 8002 board from the same kit, all without the $399 demo board. I've also got my embedded processor a Cypress Semiconductor PSoC3 responding to the device_startup_event from the 8001 board only. The issue I'm having is that the next step talks about setting configuration set by nRFgo Studio. Question: Does the nRF8001 come preprogrammed with some predefined configuration options that need to be set up, if so what are they. If not how do I go about determine what needs to pe programmed and how do I do it. I can't seem to find detail document on this or on programming the 8001 board by itself.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
I do not believe there is an evaluation board for the 8001
The configuration done by the nRFgo Studio is actually setting up a Local/Remote service database, in addition to the security settings of the device, and then generating a header file with configuration packages that you send to the nRF8001.
You would have to send all of those configuration commands to the nRF8001 for it to use the profile created in nRFgo Studio.
By downloading the nRF8001-SDK you can use the sample profile configuration header files, in case you are not able to use the nRFgo Studio. But to be able to create your own profiles you would have to use the nRFgo Studio. There are some examples that is precompiled for the nRF8200 that is in the nRF8001 Development kit, but not sure if there is any examples for your choice of microcontroller. http://www.nordicsemi.com/eng/Products/Bluetooth-R-low-energy/nRF8001-SDK
After this you would have to set the device in connectable mode (or bondable mode) depending on what type of operation you are looking for.
