According to Phone Scoop, Bluetooth 3.0 will be operating at speeds that “allow it to transfer large video files, music collections and photo libraries” in a matter of seconds. Far more like Wi-Fi, in other words.
Bluetooth 3.0 will also feature something called Enhanced Power Control (EPC), which reduces the likelihood of you suffering a Bluetooth disconnect when you put your mobile in your pocket or bag.
This comes hot on the heels of the news that Wi-Fi is seeking to take a big ol’ swipe at Bluetooth by allowing device-to-device connectivity by 2010.
We’ll find out all the details on Bluetooth 3.0 when it gets officially announced on 21st April.
