TDK has come up with a USB Bluetooth adapter that plugs into laptops and desktop PCs for wireless connectivity. Targeted at small business and home office environments as well as larger customers, the device will allow users to connect to other Bluetooth-enabled devices such as mobile phones or PDAs as well as log on to networks within a range of 50 metres. TDK was one of the founding members of the Bluetooth Consortium and has tested the adapter for compatibility with other Bluetooth devices, including access points. "TDK's Bluetooth range is dedicated to retrofitting Bluetooth technology to products that are already widely used," says TDK national business manager Brett Campbell. Designed to retrofit Bluetooth technology to existing PCs and devices, the TDK adapter is compatible with Windows 98, 2000, ME and SE. It complies with the internationally ratified Bluetooth 1.1 standard for interoperability and is capable of data-transmission speeds of up to 721Kbps. It is available this month and retails for $249.
