Nokia Research in cooperation with wireless chip manufacturer Broadcom and others has developed a new standard to allow small devices to communicate with each other over short distances. Wibree is a low power wireless protocol that can transmit at up to 1 Mbps at distances of up to 10 meters. It is not designed as a replacement for Bluetooth, but as a complement to it. Sports sensors, input devices and other light data peripherals like watches can use a tiny dedicated Wibree radio to communicate with a mobile device, which can use a combination Bluetooth / Wibree chip for maximum personal networking options. The Wibree specification is under review and should be complete in the second half of 2007.
