Sounds like the Bluetooth 3.0 announcement on April 21 is going to finally usher in the era of high-speed short-range data transfers -- as previously hinted, the new spec will actually negotiate a quick'n'dirty ad-hoc WiFi connection between devices if it needs to move bits in a hurry, and then turn

We know from countless encounters with our dear, dear friends at the Bluetooth Special Interest Group that their certifications aren't as... shall we say, \"detailed\" as their counterparts at the FCC; frequently, we don't even bother with them because there's simply nothing there to talk about.

We've seen no official word from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, but phonescoop has it that the Bluetooth 3.0 specification is just about ready for prime time.

Wait, let us get this straight. UWB is dead, but it's... not? According to a melancholy release issued today by the soon-to-shutter WiMedia Alliance, said entity has reached technology transfer arrangements to shuffle its ultra-wideband workings to groups within Bluetooth SIG and Wireless USB.

We hadn't had much doubt that HTC's leaked 2009 wares were real as it was -- especially considering that we've seen the Android-powered Sapphire doing its thing in the wild -- but these are the kinds of deals where we like just as much confirmation as we can possibly get, you know? To that end, the

Once again, the mysterious Bluetooth SIG has left us with more questions than answers. Yes, okay, so there's an HTC \"QUAR100\" that we have to worry about now, but what is it? Given the gem theme they've set up for themselves, odds are the \"QUAR\" stands for \"Quartz\" -- though our comprehensive set o

There's a \"Motorola Q11\" chilling in the Bluetooth SIG's product directory, and while the SIG is famously tight-lipped about revealing gory details about its members' unreleased wares, we see that it's a \"Phone, Handheld\" running Windows Mobile 6.1 Smartphone. Then again, given the name and the Q s

So when the Bluetooth SIG leaks a new handset, it's a leak of epically tiny proportions. Instead of the wealth of test reports we have the distinct pleasure of poring over when we get a juicy device via the FCC, the good ol' SIG gives us a single table of mostly meaningless information -- and that'

Don't expect the tight-lipped boys and girls at the Bluetooth SIG to tell you much, but HTC's brewing up something -- and that something has Bluetooth. Not the most informative bit of data, we know, but there's not a lot to go on from browsing the SIG's approval of the new device. HTC's internal mo

If you'll recall, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group already had plans laid out to speed up Bluetooth by teaming it up with UWB, but needless to say, that didn't exactly take the world by storm. Thankfully, it seems the crew is trying something else in an effort to speed up BT transfers, and jud

Everyone raise your glasses for a toast, will you? The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (better known as the Bluetooth SIG to its pals) is throwing itself a little party celebrating ten years since its inception. It's been one heck of a decade, too, considering that the SIG started with just five m

Remember that NEON100 we spied via the FCC's loose lips a few weeks back? Turns out there's at least one more version of the Touch variant being prepped -- but this time, the info comes from another famously leaky source, the Bluetooth SIG. Details are extraordinarily slim here since we don't even

We've no idea what this is, but pretty much any new codeword out of HTC is big news. Seriously, isn't it kinda fun to find out what wacky name they're going to come up with for the next device? Anyway, the Bluetooth SIG -- which is kinda like the FCC for leakage, but typically with even less inform
