Shaky start for Tokyo Bluetooth trials
Posted: 01-Sep-2001 [Source: cw360]

[Japan users able to access Bluetooth in trial run at local cafe.]

"Slow transmission speeds, shorter ranges and absent Handspring PDAs made for a shaky start to the first public trials of Bluetooth technology in Japan.

"The Bluetooth Launch Trial (BLT) project was launched on 28 August in two specially equipped Tokyo cafes by backers Nippon Ericsson, the Marubeni Group and PDA manufacturer Handspring.

"Yasuhito Hara, a spokesman for Nippon Ericsson, claimed it is now possible for anybody to walk in off the streets and access the Bluetooth network, as long as they have registered their Bluetooth device. Users without Bluetooth devices can borrow one of a handful of PDAs available in the cafe.
