While Socket recently opened its Beta driver program I met Martin Croome (see my interview with him here on the 3GSM Congress from February) in London on the MDC again and he gave me an exiting preview: ActiveSync through Socket's Bluetooth CF card and the driver for Windows Notebooks. :-) That's fantastic news I think.
The ActiveSync process is realized very smart. For the first time you try to sync your Pocket PC with your PC you don't have to pair it with the PC but it will looks around to find the right Bluetooth device. After it found your Bluetooth enabled PC you can just start the sync process or you can add this PC to a kind of Bluetooth favorite which will be available for different kind of connection types (e.g. mobile phones, printers, PCs and so on). In that case, the Pocket PC is bonded with the PC and doesn't search around next time you will use ActiveSync.
The Windows 2000 and XP driver for Notebooks will support the same functions as the new Pocket PC driver. Than you can also use your Socket Bluetooth card with your Notebook - that's great and reduce the cards to carry!
Both, the new Pocket PC driver and the Windows driver will become available anytime in May, so check out Socket's support site from time to time!
