Confirmed: Bluetooth 3.0 Coming April 21
« on: 11. April 2009., 14:45:11 »


The Bluetooth 3.0 buzz is building. The short-range wireless standard Bluetooth 3.0 will get its official launch on April 21. The developers of the standard, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, have confirmed multiple reports forecasting the release of Bluetooth 3.0 specs. According to the Bluetooth SIG on April 21 it will announce the groups latest Bluetooth standard. At that time the Bluetooth 3.0 specifications will be unveiled.

Here's What We Know About Bluetooth 3.0


The Bluetooth 3.0 standard is expected to deliver even faster short-range wireless speeds (up to 480 Mbit/s), improvements to reduce chances of device disconnections when syncing, and the addition of Generic Alternate MAC/PHY (AMP) technology that will reportedly allow Bluetooth 3.0 devices to transfer data at speed on par with Wi-Fi. Another advancement will allow the Bluetooth wireless frequency to piggyback on the Wi-Fi 802.11 protocol - in affect allowing Bluetooth over Wi-Fi. We'll have to wait until April 21 to find out more.

What's unique about Bluetooth is its low cost and low power consumption, allowing it to be used in devices such as cell phones where cost and power consumption are huge concerns for developers. However, Bluetooth technology has struggled in its efforts to be adopted widely.

What the blogs are saying


The Bluetooth SIG claims Bluetooth 3.0 can wirelessly transfer an entire music library, a complete DVD [or] a vacation's worth of photos, all within seconds, according to the blog the Bluetooth SIG. In addition to pumped-up speed, Bluetooth 3.0 could also feature "Enhanced Power Control," which reduces those annoying headset disconnects caused by putting your phone in your pocket or purse.

There are no details at the moment about Bluetooth 3.0-ready devices, but most Bluetooth watchers expect the Bluetooth SIG to release a list of manufacturers that have products ready to go at the Bluetooth 3.0 launch on April 21.

Bluetooth in the smart phone age

The new Bluetooth standard comes as smart phones are growing way beyond e-mail and voice calling into full-fledged mini-computers. For some time now, cell phone users have turned to Bluetooth for wireless headsets and to sync calendar and contact information. Now that many people are listening to music and watching movies on their mobile devices, Bluetooth needed to get faster to remain an effective solution for wireless syncing.

In the meantime, Bluetooth technology will have to compete with the Wireless USB standard that is going in popularity and influence.

Any possibility to integrate Bluetooth technology into Wi-Fi? so it would have longer range with faster trasfer speed..
well? understand ma bad English.

Yes, there is a possibility but it will take time and alot of test research with regards. Since there is already co-existence in which both connection present via radio waves that is regardless of the portion of the frequency band in which Wi-Fi operates, sharing with Bluetooth is inevitable.

But signal interference is likely to occur between these two systems if they would be operating at the same time and same place (overlapping frequencies).
