It was first speculated that the new standard would be deemed Bluetooth 2.2, but Mike has told Wireless Week that it's more probable they will call it 3.0.

 

The main differences we can expect to see from the update is much faster overall speeds as well as connection times. The company is also working on some more efficient/low-power Bluetooth versions as well.
