First time I’ve come across this new short range technology. Developed by Nokia and several large chip makers Wibree has upto a 1Mbps DATA rate and a 10m range and is designed to compliment Bluetooth. Its major advantage is its very low power consumption which make it ideal for applications such as watches, wireless keyboards, toys and sport sensors apparently.. Q2 2007 should see the first real world commercial applications. The Reg have a good article on the posistioning of this new technology. – Mobile phones, news.
