Bluetooth SIG Attempts To Bridge Websites, Phones
Oct 13, 2006, 3:05 PM by (staff)
The Bluetooth SIG has announced a new application called TransSend that would allow users to send content from their PC browser to a mobile phone with one click. Using TransSend, website developers can add functionality to send contact information, reservations, URLs, text and pictures to a phone. The data is sent from any Bluetooth enabled computer to a compatible phone as standard OBEX type files like vCard, vCal, and phone compatible images using the Object Push Profile. Phones must have an open OBEX profile in order to receive all types of data, however many phones sold in the US limit the types of files can be received. Currently TransSend is only compatible with Internet Explorer (5.5 and higher). The Bluetooth SIG is investigating compatibility with additional operating systems and browsers.
