Jul 23, 2008
What is Bluetooth, why is it in your cell phone and why should you care? Bluetooth is an exciting new technology the lets various devices from various manufacturers and providers communicate with each other on a shared wireless playing field.

Basically an ultra low power radio signal, Bluetooth phones allow wireless access to other consumer electronics devices within a range of about 30 feet. Though it may sound a bit complicated, it really is not. For those who frequently rely on handheld electronic devices such as phones, cameras and PDAs the absolute ease of use and flexibility make Bluetooth a technology you may soon grow to rely on.

It is probably no surprise that Bluetooth phones are capable of sharing voice communications with a compatible Bluetooth headset. However, with the same cell phones service, you may also be capable of establishing a connection to the internet.

By using Bluetooth technology, your phone can connect to your laptop. You can then use your laptop to surf the web or send and receive email. It's as simple as syncing the two devices.

Other accessories available for mobile phones with Bluetooth technology include hands-free headsets, car and motorcycle kits and speakers and speaker phones. The range of use of your accessories depends on the level of Bluetooth technology that your phone employs.

It will most likely use either version 1.1 or 1.2 and have a 30 foot range of use between accessories and the Bluetooth cell phone. Version 2.0 can reach a range of up to 300 feet in some cases. Check your particular model to see what version you have to get a better idea of what range you can expect.

Several options exist for Bluetooth cell phone car kits from your local consumer electronics store that plug directly into your car and are accessible wirelessly through a headset or speaker phone. Push button or voice options exist for calling and music selections in many of these devices, and your Bluetooth cell phone is functional as soon as you turn on your car or motorcycle. Many car makers are offering it as an option in their new cars.

Bluetooth phones can keep you connected through wireless, hands-free technology. Not only are your voice and data communication needs covered, you get the added benefit of internet capabilities.

With numerous accessories available for your specific needs, your life may just get a little bit easier. And with all of that convenience and flexibility from a low power radio signal, it's time to take another look at what is lurking inside your cell phone.
