Bluetooth

Bluetooth is the solution to short-range wireless requirements. This low-cost radio solution provides links between mobile computers, mobile phones, other portable handheld devices, and connectivity to the Internet. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) is a group of companies that include 3Com, Agere, Ericsson, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, Toshiba, and more than 2,000 others who strive to drive development of the technology and make marketable products using Bluetooth technology and specifications.

Intel, Nokia, Ericcson, Toshiba, and IBM founded Bluetooth in May 1998. It started out as a way to create a wireless technology that would enable data transfer between mobile devices such as cell phones, portable digital assistants (PDAs), and cars. Bluetooth uses common, unlicensed frequencies of radio spectrum and operates in the 2.4GHz range, providing short-range (10cm to 10m) communication between devices.
