New Bluetooth 2.1+EDR

Gear Live has an amazing show on version 2.1 of Bluetooth.

Andru Edwards with the help of Mike Foley, executive director of Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group), demonstrates some of the new features of Bluetooth:

  • impressive touch to connect capability, thanks to near field communication technology (even though optional in the standard, this is by far the coolest new feature)
  • better battery life
  • improved security

The specs of this new standard are being finalized now.

The first products with embedded BT 2.1 are expected to hit the market by Christmas timeframe.

The products shown were prototypes of mobile phone (Nokia), picture frame (Parrot) and printer (HP) sporting BT 2.1 technology.
