Author: JT Smith

Fairfax IT has more hype about Bluetooth being the latest and greatest thing: "Users with Bluetooth devices can then access the mobile Internet via their nearest Blip station, rather than relying on cellular
networks.

This is much faster than regular WAP, which works only at 9.6kbps for most people, and at about 30-40kbps for a minority of
users with the latest high-speed (GPRS) handsets. WAP via Bluetooth, on the other hand, zips along at up to 700kbps, making
for very rapid mobile Internet sessions."
