The Bluetooth feature for Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET supports a communication technology that allows devices within a 10-meter proximity to communicate with each other without physical cables.
Wireless headsets, modems, and printers are prime examples of devices using this type of technology.
By using various protocols and profiles, Bluetooth can be implemented to perform the following tasks:
- Connect to a modem through a cellular phone.
- Connect to a local area network (LAN) access point.
The following table shows the operating system design information for Bluetooth.
|Hardware considerations||Bluetooth interface (USB, UART, Nokia, and CSR).
When you are using the Socket Compact Flash (CF) card, the maximum size packet that Bluetooth can transmit is 256 bytes. Operations with larger packets will fail.
