Bluetooth technology is now the preferred short range wireless solution worldwide. Member companies of the Bluetooth SIG are creating clever, exciting, cutting-edge products EVERY DAY.

What is Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is an industrial specification for wireless personal area networks (PANs). Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, laptops, PCs, printers, digital cameras, and video game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed short-range radio frequency. The Bluetooth specifications are developed and licensed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group.

Its amazing to know that I don’t even have one Bluetooth enabled device at my house!
