    Looks like the plot thickens...:what:

    The Wi-Fi Alliance announced a new wireless networking specification which will enable devices to establish simple peer-to-peer wireless connections without the need for a wireless router or hotspot. Wi-Fi Direct has a wide array of potential uses, many of which encroach on Bluetooth territory and threaten to make the competing wireless protocol obsolete.

    It makes sense, it will utilize already existing technology, I think it will be very successful. Bye bye bluetooth!.. Hello Tomato-Direct?! :)

    It won't make bluetooth obsolete. It's just a wireless crossover UTP cable. :p
    Thing is, if it uses more power than BT, it's quite useless for mobile phone users (as a BT replacement), as new PDA Phones are already power-hungry monsters.

    Hi,
    The advance technology is covering the world.Still there is space for blue tooth.It will take time to become popular and I must say blue tooth will remain with it's own advantage.
