Windows XP Service Pack 2 to bring Bluetooth updates
According to the Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 Beta Fact Sheet the new update brings enhanced experience for Windows XP users. One of the updates is a new set of Bluetooth profiles for the Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse and Keyboard. Currently users of the Microsoft product can only use HID (Human Interface Devices) and dial-up connections. Windows XP SP2 includes updated support for Bluetooth, enabling users to take advantage of the latest wireless devices, including a number of wireless keyboards and mice, wireless printers, and connections with mobile phones and PDAs.

Other improvements in this area include an unified wireless local area network (LAN) client, pop-up manager for Internet Explorer, an improved version of Windows Firewall , Messenger service off by default, increased customer control over downloads of external content in Outlook Express and more.

Ars Technica published a review of this new Service Pack, including screenshots. The update is not due until summer 2004, and is currently a 222MB file.
