Supplied by The Wireless Directory Members

HCV Wireless has announced the addition of a Java Virtual Machine engine (JVM) to its BlueMod Developer Kit. The project to add Java functionality was instigated largely in response to feedback from early adopters of the BlueMod platform. "Our first users were quick to point out that while C is still the language of choice for the majority of embedded developers, Java is gaining a strong foothold for its flexibility and portability," said HCV Wireless CEO and founder Mr. Henry Valk. "By adding Java to the platform we are providing a valuable tool to an even larger development community."

HCV Wireless has also announced success with the University of Queensland. Ten BlueMod devices have been acquired for use in teaching and research projects at the University's School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.

N110:Bluetooth at the Consumer Electronics Show Review
Supplied by The Wireless Directory Members and various other websites

"Real-life" Bluetooth products that can be used in today's environments. Well, like the recent Developers' Conference, the Consumer Electronics Show served to demonstrate that the Bluetooth industry is at last beginning to release such products, with a number of new Bluetooth enabled products on view and being released.

Motorola won an Innovations Award for its Hands-free Headset specifically designed for use in the car, a silver-dollar-size metallic earpiece-and-microphone unit that lets users answer Bluetooth-enabled cellphone call wirelessly. The user has to open the headset and clamp it over his ear to begin the conversation. The phone remains untouched, stored in the nearby car glove box, inside a briefcase, or even in the boot of the car. The cellphone can be anywhere in the car, within 30 feet of the car kit, in order to be connected.  Product availability is targeted as first quarter, with a suggested retail price of $199.

Microsoft used CES to introduce Windows CE .Net, a variant of the Windows CE operating system, and which incorporates a version of Microsoft's .Net APIs and interfaces, called .Net Compact Framework. This framework software includes an array of Internet standards such as XML and Simple Object Access Protocol.

Plantronics were also demonstrating their headset solution, its prototype M1500 Bluetooth headset. The M1500 consists of an over-the-ear microphone and speaker, and a Bluetooth wireless networking dongle that attaches to a Nokia mobile phone (other manufacturers' phones are in development). Once attached, the M1500 allows the user to talk on the phone which may be in a pocket or a briefcase up to 30 feet away.

Sony demonstrated their Bluetooth Camcorders. The company  introduced the first pocketsized camcorder, the MicroMV Handicam, claimed to be the world's smallest and lightest digital camcorder. The product weighs 12 ounces and measuring 1 7/8 inches by 4 inches by 3 1/8 inches. The matchbook-sized cassette holds 60 minutes of digital footage. It is also the first camcorder to use Bluetooth technology for wirelessly transferring data between devices without booting up the PC. The new DCR-IP5 and the DCR-IP7BT MicroMV camcorders will both be available in early February priced around  $1,300 and $1,700, respectively.
