3COM TO PROVIDE BLUETOOTH SOLUTION FOR WINDOWS.
"3Com and Extended Systems are bringing the benefits of Bluetooth to mobile, Windows and handheld users by offering radically simple, feature-rich connectivity," said Rick Maule, vice president and general manager of the Mobile Connectivity Division at 3Com. "For early adopting end-users, our collaboration with Extended Systems also provides immediate compatibility and high-quality communications between personal computers enabled by 3Com's Bluetooth offerings and Palm(tm) handhelds -- the most pervasive handheld computers on the market. Bluetooth is a key element in 3Com's mission to connect consumers and commercial organizations to information and services in more innovative, simple and reliable ways than any other communications company."
Through this agreement, 3Com and Extended Systems plan to provide a solution for manufacturers and end-users who want to implement Bluetooth wireless technology with existing Windows-based PCs. Combining 3Com's mobile connectivity leadership in wireless technologies with Extended Systems' mobile data management and Bluetooth expertise, provides a foundation for broad adoption of Bluetooth wireless technology.
3Com will use its Bluetooth hardware and the jointly developed Windows software suite to offer a complete end-user ready solution for synchronizing and managing data between PCs and Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices. Extended Systems will provide device and PC manufacturers with Windows development kits, protocol stacks and data management applications.
