This is the World’s slimmest USB Bluetooth Dongle and while many laptops have Bluetooth these days, you will find thousands of old and brand new portable computers without this feature.

This is where Bluetooth dongle comes in handy, although many users hate the idea of having accessories sticking out of their computer. You may have USB hubs, expansion cards, wireless mice powered by USB adapters and other devices.

The last thing you want is a big stick on the side of your laptop to give it Bluetooth, and this is not the case with the World’s slimmest USB Bluetooth Dongle (AL325-A984). As you can see in the photos on this page, it sits pretty neat and tidy in a spare USB port.

USB Fever say “If this is not the world smallest USB Bluetooth Dongle, it should at least should be the second one” and they are right there, it’s tiny.

The USB Bluetooth dongle is compatible with Windows XP and Vista, it was easy to setup (no drivers needed) and simple to use with many Bluetooth devices. This is the smallest dongle we have used and it has no chance of being knocked and broke like some other Bluetooth dongles thanks to it’s tiny size.

    Nice and small…very cool indeed. It seems most gadgets will be palm sized or smaller in the next few years.
