History of Bluetooth

Friday, September 1st, 2006 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

History of Bluetooth

Recently, we sold a Bluetooth headset that you could use with any media player and your cell phone, among other devices. Unfortunately, we have sold out of those, but since then, I have gotten several e-mails from people wanting to know a little more information on what Bluetooth actually is. I thought it would be neat to give you some history on this new and interesting technology.

First of all, in case some of you don’t know, Bluetooth is the common name for the new short range wireless technology that is able to transmit voice and data while working with mobile phones, music players, personal digital assistants (PDA) and computers. For even more information on what Bluetooth does, make sure you check out this tip.

Okay, now for some history. The Bluetooth technology was given its name in reference to the Danish king Harald “Bluetooth” Blaatand. He was the one who unified Denmark and Norway between 940 and 985 AD. The reason Bluetooth is named after him is because it is known to unite the telecom and computing industries today. Makes sense, right?! It’s all about unity!

I know this really isn’t like the usual tips we run, but I thought some of you might find it interesting! : )
