Part 4: The Future of Bluetooth Technolo... > Beyond the Version 1.0 Specification

Chapter 16. Beyond the Version 1.0 Specification

Having examined the version 1.0 specification in detail, we now turn our attention to post-version 1.0 matters. In particular we look into the activities of the SIG in developing new profiles, as well as some possibilities for products that use Bluetooth wireless technology. The thesis of this chapter is on new applications that might appear in the realm of Bluetooth technology, rather than on factual content that was explored in the main body of the book. Hence the tone of this chapter and the one that follows is a bit different.

Earlier in the book we noted that for version 1.0 the SIG focused on enabling basic cable-replacement scenarios. The SIG consciously decided to defer profile development that would support many more advanced yet interesting and valuable usage cases so as to accelerate the development of the version 1.0 specification. Many of these new usage models are addressed in profiles developed after version 1.0 publication. In this chapter we examine those profiles under development in the year 2000 along with other associated work within the SIG.
