Cordless Bluetooth Phones
Although you may not be aware of it, the majority of mobile phones these days are actually Bluetooth phones. However, you may be wondering what Bluetooth is and what, if anything, it has to do with you. Bluetooth allows compatible devices to share both voice and data communications through an ultra low power radio signal within a range of about thirty feet. The technology is not limited to simply voice and data exchange. A couple other features may just have you looking at your cell phone in a completely new way – features that allow you hands-free and wire-free connection.
Bluetooth technology was designed primarily to support simple wireless services of personal consumer devices and peripherals, including cell phones, PDAs, and wireless headsets. It is a short-range wireless technology, which is used to create personal area networks among compatible devices. What you may not have known is, a connection using Bluetooth enabled phones and a laptop can be established to make it possible to surf the web and send and receive email.
Other accessories available for mobile phones with Bluetooth technology include hands-free headsets, car and motorcycle kits and speakers and speakerphones. 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 thirty-foot range of use between accessories and the Bluetooth cell phone. Version 2.0 can reach a range of up to three hundred 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 speakerphone. 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 carmakers are offering it as an option in their new cars.
Bluetooth phones allow you constant, hassle-free, wire-free phone use, whether in the car, at home, or while working. Handy accessories give you hands-free voice and data communication, as well as nifty tricks to keep you connected to the Internet, wherever you may be. Bluetooth is both an easy and inexpensive way to link up with the rest of the world.
