It seems that many people want to learn about BluetoothTM technology. As the first Bluetooth products start to appear in the marketplace, press articles and broadcasts and events such as developers conferences seem to be growing in popularity. As my co-author Chatschik Bisdikian and I point out in our book Bluetooth Revealed, there has not been a lot of background and overview information about this new technology in the past. The specification describes the technology in great detail but doesn't offer a lot in the way of introduction.
Our book is intended to be an authoritative yet accessible guide to Bluetooth wireless communication. In Chapter 1, we provide a brief overview of the Bluetooth technology and the Special Interest Group that developed it. Here, with the permission of the publisher, Prentice-Hall PTR, we offer that same information.
