Socket Communications adopt new Bluetooth software
Socket Communications announced the availability of its enhanced cordless solution for laptops, notebooks and desktop computer systems running Windows 98SE, Me, 2K and XP. The new software version is based on IVT Corporation's Bluetooth stack software. IVT's versions cover a variety of profiles, including PAN, OPP, SYNC, LAP, DUN, FTP, FAX, HID, SPP, HCRP, BIP, Headset, AV(Audio & Video). It's not clear if all these are implemented on the version released by Socket Communications.

“Mobile professionals already using Socket’s cordless products with their Pocket PCs appreciate being free from the hassle of cords and cables,” said Peter Phillips, vice president of marketing at Socket. “As such, we are enhancing this capability for other computing platforms including tablets, laptops, notebooks and desktop computers.”

The enhanced cordless software, which includes additional Bluetooth profile support, will be bundled with Socket’s CompactFlash (CF) Connection Kit as of 4 May 2004. Information on how to obtain a software upgrade will be sent via email to Socket registered users in the near future. Socket’s CF Card with Bluetooth Wireless Technology is suited for tablets, laptops and notebooks as a Bluetooth cordless expansion option since it is the only add-on card that does not have a protruding bump after being installed on a mobile device. The card has a fully integrated antenna offering two major benefits: it will not change the size or look of a mobile device, and it reduces the risk of damage to the card or mobile device when in use.
