Faster Bluetooth 3.0 Launches with WiFi Twist

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group today officially launched Bluetooth 3.0 with some big claims for the short-range wireless standard. The biggest improvement for the new standard is speed, which jumps from a top transfer rate of 3 Mbps found in the current Bluetooth standard to 24 Mbps in 3.0, according to the Bluetooth SIG. Faster speeds are accomplished because 3.0 employs the 802.11 radio protocol–basically allowing the Bluetooth protocol to piggyback on a Wi-Fi signal when transferring large amounts of data like videos, music and photos.
