Bluetooth And Apple

The new Apple powerbook G4 are among the first

computers to offer Bluetooth technology 2.0+EDR.

The 2.0+EDR technology, which still backwards

compatible with 1.0, is up to three times faster

than previous versions, offering maximum data rate

transfers of up to 3 MBps. Being the first company

to certify a system with 2.0+EDR, Apple continues

to make great use of the Bluetooth technology.

In addition to the powerbook G4 portables, there

are other Bluetooth enabled computers available

from Apple, including the iBook, iMac G5, eMac,

and the Power Mac G5.

Making life easier

When you turn the Bluetooth feature on, your Mac

iBook and AirPort in 1999. During 2003, Apple
