Bluetooth 1.2 starts to move: NEC 3G mobile phone to have Bluetooth
Ericsson Technology Licensing has signed a license agreement with NEC Corporation for Bluetooth software from Ericsson. The agreement entails the licensing of the Ericsson Core Bluetooth Software Stack B-C1 and B-C3.

The Ericsson Core Bluetooth Software Stack B-C1, based on Bluetooth v 1.1, with functionality including headset and dial-up support, has been implemented in NEC's new 3G mobile phone, 616. This is the first license agreement between Ericsson and NEC for Bluetooth.

The agreement also includes the licensing of Ericsson's recently announced Bluetooth 1.2 stack, the Ericsson Core Bluetooth Software Stack B-C3. The stack includes all the Bluetooth functionality required in the current and the expected next generation of mobile phones, such as support for headsets and handsfree, audio streaming and Java APIs.

"We are very pleased to be awarded a contract by NEC," says Maria Khorsand, President of Ericsson Technology Licensing. "NEC is not only the largest Japanese mobile phone manufacturer, they are also highly respected and well-known globally and are now launching 3G phones. As a major promoter of Bluetooth technology, Ericsson believes that NEC's embracement of this technology will further drive the adoption of Bluetooth in mobile phones."
