ADOPTION: Bluetooth SIG announces Bluetooth 4.1 - Extends the Foundation of Bluetooth for Internet of Things
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:57 CET under 01 - General News

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) announced the adoption of updates to the Bluetooth Core Specification. Bluetooth 4.1 is said to be an important evolutionary update to the wireless specification, which experienced a revolutionary update in July 2010 with Bluetooth Smart, the intelligent, low-energy technology enabling the Internet of Things (IoT). The updates will improve consumer usability with increased co-existence support for LTE, bulk data exchange rates and aid developer innovation by allowing devices to support multiple roles simultaneously. The new release also lays the groundwork for IP-based connections, extending Bluetooth technology's role as the essential wireless link for the IoT.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:34 CET under 08 - Reviews

Announced back in July, I finally got the chance to play a little bit longer with Nokia's Windows Phone camera flagship, the Nokia Lumia 1020, which went first on sale in the U.S. The Lumia 1020 is the Windows Phone successor of the Symbian-based Nokia 808 and like its step-brother it's featuring Nokia's unique 41 megapixel PureView technology. When launched, no other Windows Phone was as powerful as the Lumia 1020 which runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 and is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core Qualcomm S4 CPU. The European version supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, quadband UMTS/HSPA+ up to 42.2 Mbps at 850/900/1900/2100 MHz as well as pentaband LTE up to 100 Mbps at 800/900/1800/2100/2600 MHz; the AT&T version features slightly different bands, optimized for North America.
