Microsoft releases Windows Embedded Source Tools with Bluetooth development support
Posted on 11-May-2005 09:55 | Tags Filed under: News



Bill Gates, chairman and chief software architect of Microsoft Corp., announced the release of a free, managed-class library for building Bluetooth enabled applications and services for Windows CE 5.0 and Windows Mobile 5.0 devices.

The new library reduces the native Bluetooth code from hundreds of lines to just a few, making development faster and easier, and giving developers more time to create new and innovative applications. Offered under a Microsoft Shared Source license, the Windows Embedded Source Tools for Bluetooth Technology enables developers to customize and ship their code without any obligation to share the modifications with Microsoft, competitors or the development community, giving developers the opportunity to differentiate their Bluetooth solutions in the marketplace.

"The traditionally time-intensive process for Bluetooth development just shrank considerably," said Jane Gilson, director of the Mobile and Embedded Devices Division at Microsoft. "These source tools provide a unique solution, letting developers create Bluetooth applications in minutes instead of hours, all while expanding their Bluetooth offerings in this growing market."

The range of Bluetooth enabled services and solutions that can now be created with the Windows Embedded Source Tools for Bluetooth Technology is limited only by the imaginations of the developers who use them. Scenarios could include connected devices such as those for peer-to-peer gaming, file transfer and social networking; mobile handsets and headsets; and the purchase of applications or services from mobile operator kiosks such as ring tones or themes, or even movies and games.
