Bluetooth is most loved way till now for the data transfer between portable devices. With its intelligence and good range it has been used in too much products like iPad, Mobiles, Pronter, headphone etc and makes it existence in the fast changing tech world.
What is Bluetooth 4.0?
Bluetooth 4.0 is the latest version of the wireless technology which will be used in many tech gadgets. The updated Bluetooth 4.0 version is only found in the iPhone 4S and the latest MacBook Air and Mac Mini, with more manufacturers expected to use this in their products very soon. The improvements brought by Bluetooth 4.0 include drastically reduced power consumption via a low pulsing method that keeps devices connected without the need of a continuous information stream.
Bluetooth 4.0 is an high speed data transfer channel or link for mobile device to be seen in the mobile device befor the end of 2010 in market. Presently the Bluetooth SIG ( Special Intereset group ) is working on it. They are trying to make Bluetooth 4.0 to be highly energy efficeint ( that it it can work on very low power ) . Thus it can be used in small devices like watches and tiny gadgets which work on button cells. Prior version’s of Bluetooth requires high powered batteries to work on and atleast AAA batteries to work on.
According to Foley, the big improvements added to Bluetooth 3.0 and 4.0 were significant. While the general range of the wireless protocol remains the same (up to 300 feet), version 3.0 enabled a much faster theoretical data throughput of 26Mbps compared with the 2Mbps of version 2.1. That’s swift enough says Foley, to handle data intensive tasks like video streaming.
Another convenience newer forms of Bluetooth brings is compatibility with NFC chips. Both Bluetooth versions 3.0 and 4.0 can talk to NFC hardware in phones and laptops to make pairing a simple process of tapping the two devices together. So you can imagine configuring Wi-Fi settings on mobile gadgets just by resting them on NFC equipped routers or hooking up headsets with tablets and phones in the same manner.
