Bluetooth and WiFi Effects On Phone Bridges

ISV PenandMouse As we wrote yesterday, tendencies in the near future are mobile and can be easily articulated with gadgets as the one you are watching on this post, the ISV PenandMouse [http://www.redferret.net/?p=10013]. You must be heard news about the free Wi-Fi service in Starbucks and other places in the States and this will be complete when this year a new chip, that includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules integrated in one, will make an appearance in gadgets and a broad range of devices by the middle of next year. Sizlopedia brigs the information and we quote which will be the benefits:
This means a consumer can use a mobile phone equipped with a Bluetooth wireless headset to make a call while using the same phone to simultaneously check information on the Internet via a WLAN network - without experiencing interference.

Also, by reducing two chips into one, will not only reduce the cost of devices, it will have effect on the power consumption as well, thus further enhancing battery live.

If this are the tendencies not only in technology but in the applications to the Higher Education then we should be looking out the development of the Phone Bridges considered as platform. Learningalliances.net makes a roundup of most platforms used by its effect and we think those might be used also in the eclassrooms, considering that bridge platforms can send "email announcements scheduling a call and make a recording of a call and serve up the recording to people who didn’t make it to the call."

The iPhone its only the beginning and while more and more students are having not only one cell phone, it's time to start searching for immediate application of mobile technology in the classrooms and as an instant medium of communication.

Are you using in any ways the phone bridges in the academic spectrum you are actually working?
