The name Bluetooth originates from Scandinavian technology. It was named after Danish King Harald Bluetooth. Today in our day to day life, we are surrounded by different multimedia devices like smartphones, PDA's, laptops, iPods, video game systems and other portable devices. All or most of them have Bluetooth technology embedded in them.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology used to transfer data between different portable and non-portable electronic and multimedia devices. With the help of this technology we can send and receive files securely and quickly. The distance of data transmission in Bluetooth is small, typically up to30 feet or 10 meters, in comparison to other modes of wireless communication. However, this technology eradicates the use of cords, cables, adapters and any other guided media and permits the electronic devices to communicate wirelessly among each other.
