Bluetooth 3.0 Official Spec: Wi-Fi Speeds and Better Battery Life

Hopefully Bluetooth 3.0 lives up to its official specs in this plane of existence, 'cause they're nice: Using the 802.11 radio protocol, average transfer rates are between 22-26Mbps and devices even get better battery life.

Besides making batteries go further (obviously in terms of idleness, since every wireless connection uses more juice to send more data) Unicast Connectionless Data makes gadgets more responsive over Bluetooth, and Enhanced Power Control will supposedly translate to less disconnects from shoving your phone in your pocket.

Too bad we'll have to wait nearly a year for the first Bluetooth 3.0 gadgets. I'd like a Bluetooth 3.0 mouse with built-in flash storage, electric razor and mini cooling fan. [PC World]
