Jon Fingas, writing for Engadget:
Bluetooth is about to become a lot less hassle-prone. The wireless
standard’s Special Interest Group has officially adopted the
Bluetooth 5 spec, clearing the way for device makers to use the
much-improved technology in everything from phones to wearables to
smart home equipment. This doesn’t mean that you’ll see it right
away, of course. The group expects Bluetooth 5-equipped products
to hit the market in the next 2 to 6 months, or right around when
the next wave of smartphones is likely to arrive.
Yours truly, one year ago:
“Next year it will work great” should be the motto of Bluetooth.
