As a result of that I’ve pointed my feed reader over at the bluetoothlounge.com. A hugely indepth article about the technical problems of why it’s so hard to get a bluetooth headset playing music and taking phone calls has shown up. It’s a long indepth read that lost me on many technical aspects. The summary is thus:
The requirement of Bluetooth music and voice to co-exist brings to the fore technical and non-technical challenges. The good news is that these challenges are not insurmountable because they relate largely to implementation choices made by individual companies and absence of a cohesive guideline.
These challenges have been recognized and are being addressed. Through co-ordination at the consortium level (Bluetooth SIG) as well as by individual companies, it is possible to convert the potential into a technical and commercial success story.
I will be writing to the authors to give them the message that real people are wanting a solution and maybe an encouraging ‘hurry-up’.
Frankly though, I wish it would just work and I never had to subscribe to the bluetooth rss feed let alone read the article.
