A computing and telecommunications industry specification that describes how different components such as mobile phones, computers, or personal digital assistants can communicate with each other. Bluetooth is a RF technology that operates at 2.4 GHz, has an effective range of 32-feet (10 meters) (this range can change depending on the power class), and has a transfer rate of 1 Mbps and throughput of 721 Kbps. A good example of how Bluetooth could be used is the ability to connect a computer to a cell phone without any wires or special connectors. In the picture to the right, is an example of a USB Bluetooth adapter from SMC.
