It's here. Bluetooth 2.0 is showing up in new devices and bringing some advances over the original standard with it. Bluetooth has been knocked for having somewhat slow transfer speeds with large data files. Bluetooth 2.0 aims to get over that hurdle by tripling the optimum bandwidth to 3Mbps. Since data will transfer faster, users should also see improvements in the battery life of their 2.0 devices.
IOGearwas one of the first to market late last year with Bluetooth 2.0 USB adapters for desktop and notebook PCs and Macs. They're avail-able in Class 1 (330-foot range) for $49.95 and Class 2 (66-foot range) for $39.95. Bluetooth 2.0 is backward- compatible with earlier ver-sions, so you won't have to replace any Bluetooth tech-nology you already have.
