Bluetooth 3.0 will appear in April.

The Working Group is developing a standard wireless data transfer Bluetooth, April 21, will release the specification of Bluetooth 3.0, says Wi-Fi Net News. Modules to support the new specifications would be to combine the two radio.
First, with low power consumption, provides data on the normal version of Bluetooth for the second speed in the three megabita in the second. Another high-speed and compatible with the 802.11 standard provides speeds that are comparable with the speed networks Wi-Fi.
It should be noted that Bluetooth 3.0 uses the 802.11 standard without the suffix, that is not formally compatible with the specifications of Wi-Fi, both 802.11b / g or 802.11n. 802.11 - a more common standard.
The use of a radio depends on the size of the transferred file. Smaller files will be transferred to a slow channel, and more - for high speed. After the end of the transfer module returns to lower energy consumption.
In addition, Bluetooth 3.0 will be possible under the title "advanced control power" (Enhanced Power Control), writes Electronista. It avoids the connection if the device is put in a bag or pocket.
Not yet known whether it was possible to upgrade to the existing modules to support Bluetooth 3.0, and when the market will be products that use the new specification.
