The Future Of Bluetooth

Because it meets the basic needs of connectivity in

close range, Bluetooth has a very bright future

ahead of it.  Bluetooth is actually the result of

initiatives from nine leading communications and

computer industry giants, including 3-COM, Sony,

Lucent, IBM, Nokia, Microsoft, etc.

Since the forming of the original group, more than

1,800 manufacturers around the world have joined

the initiative.  According to reports, the Bluetooth

technology is expected to be built into more than

100 million devices, with over 670 million enabled

Bluetooth devices.

Resulting from the amazing success of WAP (Wireless

Application Protocol), the adoption of smart phones

and hand held devices, Bluetooth can easily have

an amazing impact on your day to day life.  Bluetooth

is one of the key technologies that can help to

make the mobile information society happen, by

blurring the possibilities between home, the office,

and the outside world.

The seamless integration and connectivity that

Bluetooth promises will make it possible to explore

a wide range of interactive and highly transparent

personalized services which were actually quite

difficult to dream of simply because of the

complexity involved with making such devices

communicate with each other.

Many Bluetooth pilot products have already been

rolled into the market and backed by big vendors,

which is a healthy sign for the overall acceptance

of the technology.  The support for Bluetooth isn’t

limited to companies that develop only Bluetooth

enabled products.

The applications for Bluetooth can have great

impacts on other industries as well.  The adoption

of Bluetooth technology is expected to spread

throughout the industry of computers.  

Unlike infrared technology, Bluetooth is used by

many different wireless devices.  Bluetooth offers

exceptional quality for short range wireless, even

going through walls and obstructions.  While

infrared is the biggest competitor at this time,

Bluetooth far surpasses it, proving to millions that

it is the wireless communication technology of the

present day and age.

In the beginning, Bluetooth started with version 1.0,

then gradually moved from there.  The current

version is 2.0+EDR, with another version currently

in development.  The technology behind the Bluetooth

specification always getting better and better,

which is why it’s so popular.

In the future, you can expect the technology

behind Bluetooth to get better.  Bluetooth has

proven to be the wireless standard of the future,

offering you wireless connectability for hundreds

of different devices.  For cell phones or other forms

of wireless connections, Bluetooth is the one

technology that you don’t want to find yourself

without.
