Bluetooth certification rising

Monday, 18 March, 2002

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (BSIG) has said that it has certified over 500 Bluetooth-enabled products, marking a milestone for the short-range technology.

During the fourth quarter of 2001, BSIG said 133 products complied with the Bluetooth specification of which half were either mobile phones, computer-related or consumer electronics products while the remainder were chipsets and development tools.

"Developers have responded favourably to the stability of the Bluetooth wireless specification and we are [moving] towards our ultimate objective of providing users with an easy-to-use, standardised means for wirelessly connecting their electronic products," said Michael McCamon, chairman of the BSIG marketing committee.

Throughout 2001 and 2002, BSIG's interoperability task force has been exploring ways to improve the interoperability of Bluetooth-enabled products.
