this would be nice and sounds exactly like what intel is already planning with their upcoming wi-fi stuff for the calpella platform

Meh. I don't use Bluetooth anyway, haven't found a use for it yet.

It's good to see technologies unified, Wi-Fi Direct, Open Physics in new-gen graphics, Intel Light-Peak.
Bluetooth is useful, but one technology for all purposes is good.

It should kill off Bluetooth (even though I like Bluetooth as is except for high royalty causing devices to be expensive) because creating Wi-Fi devices should be cheaper.

Also, hopefully it'll use the 5 GHz spectrum as the 2.4 GHz spectrum is way too crowded.

My first thought is how will this affect battery life in portable devices? My experience has been that batteries drain like there is no tomorrow when wifi is enabled.... Bluetooth not so much.

www.goomeo.com is already next on the chopping block for the RIAA.

I'm not against wifi-direct but I do have one concern about it. With that more many devices using wifi such as keyboards, mouse etc, won't there be to many signals in an area? Causing a slow down in data transfers?

This seems sort of off topic bud. Last time I checked though, religion had nothing to do with people doing evil things. Nutjobs come in all flavors and nothing inhibits immorality aside from choices the person makes.

\back on topic\

Any-way, I'd like to see the white papers in the near future and a chance to look over the preliminary testing.

Does this mean it would be possible for me to roam a 35,000sqft office with a wifi "headset" and still be able to get my phone calls? This would be AWSOME!My bluetooth headset has a very limited range and the entire office is "wired" for wifi.

WiFi will never take BT's place unless this new specification uses less or equal amount of energy than BT. We already have issues keeping our BT devices alive longer periods, so energy efficiency should be concern nr 1.

My opinion anyway.
