The Bluetooth 3.0 specifications will be released on April 21. This specification will be faster, more reliable and it will also introduce Bluetooth over WiFi.
The Bluetooth SIG says, "Transferring an entire music library, a complete DVD, a vacation's worth of photos, all within seconds at the touch of a button and wirelessly will now be possible."
One new feature of Bluetooth 3.0 will be called Enhanced Power Control (EPC) designed to reduce the incidence of disconnects caused by things like placing a phone in your pocket. The specification will also allow Generic Alternate MAC/PHY (AMP) enabling Bluetooth profiles to take advantage of 802.11 speeds and will allow the Generic AMP to be used with an 802.11 radio.
