Bluetooth World Congress this week
Posted on 18-Jun-2003 18:56 | Tags Filed under: News



The Bluetooth World Congress is happening in Amsterdan this week. Analysts expect 225 million individual Bluetooth devices will ship this year.

Bluetooth is technology is expected to be available in 225 million individual Bluetooth devices shipped this year, up from 41 million last year, and by 2006 that number is projected to grow to one billion. Bluetooth semiconductor revenue will grow from $330m (201m) last year to 2.5bn in 2006, according to research company iSuppli.

Key to Bluetooth's growth is expected to be its expansion from mobile phones, handheld computers and PCs into applications such as industrial equipment and telematics. TDK Systems is aiming to stimulate that market with a range of Bluetooth adapters introduced at the expo.

On the end-user side, Finland-based BlueGiga is offering a server product that allows retailers to distribute Java and Symbian OS applications to their customers through a quick wireless transaction. Symbian is an operating system used in smartphones from Nokia, Sony Ericsson and others, while a broad range of mobile phones are capable of running Java applications, typically games.

BlueGiga's Installation Point application, which runs on the company's WRAP (Wireless Remote Access Platform) Access Server, allows customers to receive an application via Bluetooth directly on the shop floor. The transfer is initiated when the customer sends a business card to the server.
