Comments on: Several Bluetooth Wireless Networking Solutions Announced

If someone wants to connect wirelessly to a network with Bluetooth, there will soon be plenty of hardware and software available to allow this. At DEMOmobile 2001, Bluefish Wireless and Pico Communications have both announced Bluetooth network access tools.

Bluefish Wireless introduced its Bluetooth-enabled Access Point. This gives users the ability to use either Infrared or Bluetooth to transfer data to and from their handheld and the Internet or backend databases. It supports up to eight users at a time on a single access point.

Bluetooth is a connectivity method to allow you to set up a PAN (Personal Area Network). The devices that make up your PAN could be storage arrays, cellphones, printers, or ethernet access gateways. Note that these are ethernet GATEWAYS - acting as a router between the Bluetooth protocol and standard IP based protocols.

I think that 2002 is going to be a huge year for Palm. Its only a matter of time before they will begin building Bluetooth modules into Palms (as I understand it anyway, and soon ARM processors will take Palms to the next level. I was seriously considering buying a Handera, N710C, or m505, but none had all of the features I wanted, and I think that next year, we're going to see some units that will blow us away. Thats just my 2 cents.

Nah, we won't see units that will blow us away. At least not most of the people here. They'll still bitch about the color, or the external memory support, or the way it smells when they open the box, etc.

I personally see some great stuff on the horizon though, and I don't get enjoyment about bitching about colors.
