Chips Complying with Bluetooth 2.0 + Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) Hit the Market in 2005

DUBLIN, Ireland—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Oct. 12, 2005— Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Wireless Connectivity & Pan - Bluetooth 2005: the Future Is Here to their offering.

Bluetooth has firmly established itself as a short-range wireless solution for voice and data transmission. 2005 will represent the fourth consecutive year to see Bluetooth-enabled product shipments more than double.

Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones dominated Bluetooth-enabled product shipments in 2004. They are in turn helping Bluetooth penetration into other products, including notebook PCs, mono and stereo headsets, automobiles, and portable digital music players. New Bluetooth standards are emerging to meet increasing requirements. Chips complying with Bluetooth 2.0 + Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) are beginning to hit the market in 2005, providing both greater bandwidth and lower power consumption. In May 2005, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group announced that the Ultra-Wideband standard would become the foundation for an even higher data rate Bluetooth standard. Bluetooth will need to constantly adapt in the face of competition that includes Wireless USB, Wireless 1394 and Wi-Fi.

This report contains analysis and five-year forecasts for all Bluetooth-enabled products, including those in the PC, communications, and consumer electronics segments. The report also contains responses on Bluetooth and wireless headsets from our annual Residential Technology Survey. Brief profiles of major Bluetooth silicon suppliers are also provided.
