Bluetooth 4.0: Devices To Launch in Q4 2010

Bluetooth 3.0 compliant devices are not exactly dominating the market at the moment, however there is already talk of Bluetooth 4.0 complaint devices launching later this year.

The executive director of Bluetooth SIG believes that by the end of the year we should expect to see Bluetooth 4.0 compliant computers, headsets and smartphones launched.

Bluetooth SIG believe that Bluetooth 4.0’s ultra-low power consumption will increase this standard’s appeal, this means that complaint devices battery life will not suffer at the cost of offering this latest technology.

It seems as if all of the talk regarding Bluetooth 4.0’s ultra-low power consumption is a bit of a waste of time as Foley later states that “users shouldn’t necessarily expect significant power savings over previous versions when moving to Bluetooth 4.0”, he does however believe that Bluetooth 4.0’s low-energy mode will offer benefits, it seems as if Foley is somewhat contradicting himself.
