What is Bluetooth?

The definition of Bluetooth is a short-range, digital wireless protocol for enabling devices to talk to each other. A very common example of a Bluetooth device is a Bluetooth wireless headset, which is a small battery-powered headset that a user can wear on their year, which can then wirelessly connect to a Bluetooth enabled cellular phone. Most currently available so phones, such as the Motorola RAZR or Apple iPhone include Bluetooth support.

Bluetooth devices can be paired together; to do this one device is put in pairing mode, and the other device is told to look for the other one. Once they wirelessly connect the user can then confirm that they want to connect these two devices after which it will become paired, and automatically connect when in range of each other.

There many types of other Bluetooth devices, including Bluetooth wireless headphones, Bluetooth wireless mice and keyboards for computers or laptops, and even Bluetooth enabled cars which allow you to connect your cell phone to your car for hands-free talking while inside the vehicle.
