Bluetooth 3.0 to be in devices within 9 to 12 months


Written on 4/22/2009 03:42:00 PM by poison_ivy

The Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group) has formally adopted Bluetooth version 3.0. The new Bluetooth protocol makes use of the 802.11 radio protocol and provides increased data transfers which approximates the rate of 24Mbps plus increased power savings due to the built in power control.

The Bluetooth Sig also say that consumer products which makes use of the Bluetooth 3.0 protocol will be expected within 9 to 12 months.

So, what does it mean for mobile phones? Like what Bluetooth Sig says, hopefully, faster transfers of MP3 and video files over Bluetooth links and an increase in "wireless" connections between devices. For our sake, I hope that new devices that would support Bluetooth 3.0 will have a good backwards compatibility with devices using old Bluetooth versions.
