The Cutting Edge of Medical Technology Content, Community & Collaboration

eWeek reports on the 22Apr09 announcement of the pending release of a new Bluetooth standard - v3.0. This new version will increase the maximum wireless throughput from 3mb/sec to 23mb/sec. “Utilizing the 802.11 radio was a natural choice as it provides efficiencies for both our members and consumers — members get more function out of the two radios they are already including in devices, and consumers with Bluetooth v3.0 HS products will get faster exchange of information without changing how they connect,” said Michael Foley, executive director of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), in a statement. Consumer devices which exploit this new standard are likely to appear in 6-9 months.
