November 2007
Incisor attended a new industry event this month, the IMS Conferences ‘Bluetooth Evolution’ conference, which was heavily supported by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. There was a bit of a rumpus, though, based on one of the keynote speeches. No blood was spilled, but various - apparently fixed – aspects of the Bluetooth roadmap were called into question. Read the Incisor overview on page 9 for more information.

This month, the Bluetooth SIG lent its support to a new event – the “Bluetooth Evolution Conference”, which was to be hosted jointly with IMS Conferences. We wish IMS and the Bluetooth SIG well with this event. We examine, too, the Bluetooth SIG's decision to create a working group to look at using W-Fi as an alternative/additional high speed data channel. If you remember, 'til now, this has been Ultra Wideband.

Stereo Headset Review issue
Fifteen months ago, Incisor reviewed the first stereo Bluetooth headsets to hit the market. At that time we thought that these were OK, but not exceptional products. We firmly believe that stereo music is a major growth area for Bluetooth, and so it was decided that we would look again at what was available, and to see what advances have been made. The number of headsets reviewed in this issue rises from 3 last time to six this time, and include products from Motorola. Nokia, Wi-Gear and Finnish company Iqua. They are better, for sure. But how much better, and who were the winners and losers? You will have to read the feature to see.

August 2007
Wireless USB has been a long time coming. It was at CES in January 2006 that Incisor first saw companies showing UWB-based wireless USB demo kit. Now, seventeen months later, in August 2007, we hear that the first finished products to incorporate wireless USB have passed compliance and certification testing for Certified Wireless USB. A number of the UWB companies have marked this fact with commercial and product announcements, which are included in this issue.

Wireless Symposium - July 2007special issue
This was the month when Incisor’s 2007 Wireless Symposium event was staged in central London. Inevitably, this regular issue of Incisor also contains follow-up information and news relating to Ultra Low Power Bluetooth/Wibree. The Wireless Symposium gathered together the organisations behind the global management and promotion for Bluetooth, WiMedia, Wi-Fi and DECT/CAT-iq, and positioned them in front of a VIP audience of press, analysts and media to present and justify their technologies. The event was also filmed by Incisor TV for the comprehensive video presentation that can be accessed from this issue (see p9) and from Incisor’s video archive at www.incisor.tv.

June 2007
Our main feature this month looks at DLNA. How much do you know about DLNA, and its likely impact on Bluetooth, UWB, Wi-Fi and other wireless standards? The Digital Living Network Alliance intends to go from zero to domination of the consumer connectivity sector by the end of 2008. We talk to the DLNA’s President and Chairman of the Board Scott Smyers. We also talk to industry experts to gain an external viewpoint. Some of the comments are controversial, to say the least …

May 2007
During April the Bluetooth Special Interest Group’s annual event for its members – the All Hands Meeting - took place in Vienna, Austria. At this event, the SIG and its members addressed the forecast that it will ship 2 billion Bluetooth devices in 2010 – that is in one year alone. To hit that 2 billion device mark, Bluetooth has to face the ultimate challenge, which is to step into the consumer marketing environment, and to create the same levels of consumer pull, desire, and need, that firms like Apple do.

This is another video enabled issue of Incisor. We have profiled two companies this month. First, we met with RFI Wireless, a division of RFI Global Services, and discussed the complicated process of testing and approving converged wireless devices. Then we met with Icron Technologies at its Vancouver, Canada HQ in order to create a video presentation that highlights the company’s work in the USB extension market, including its latest wireless development – USB over 802.11G. Meanwhile, the Bluetooth SIG has updated the Core Bluetooth specification, and we also include a review of a lifestyle, wearable Bluetooth product, the Motorola-Burton Audex jacket. Plus, we announce an important new project for Incisor and Incisor TV – a Wireless Symposium that will take place in London during June. See page 15 for details.
