Windows XP to get Bluetooth support

| Software News | Posted: Sep 27, 2002 7:43 am

Microsoft has released an update to manufacturers that adds native Bluetooth support to Windows XP. I had my first taste of Bluetooth at this year's Computex Expo in Taiwan, and since then it has continued to fascinate me.

 

The Redmond, Wash.-based company on Thursday released to manufacturers an update that would add Bluetooth support to Windows XP. Bluetooth allows peripherals, handhelds and cell phones to connect to PCs without wires. The technology is complimentary to 802.11b wireless, or "Wi-Fi," which is used to network computers together or connect them to the Internet over the air.
