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.

Old Hat, "QR CODES" are much better and simpler

Hate to break it to them, but that type of msg-/data-push is an old Hat. As usually in the mobile-comm field, the Japanese are ahead of us again. It's called QR CODE. it's a 2D-barcode, that any cam-phone can read technically.

Just point you cellular to the 2D-code, take a snapshot, and you've the data loaded in your phone. Works off any PC-monitor, TV-screen, paper-magazine or bill-boards even and can contain a vast array of information/data

so why needing something thats technologically is more cumbersome ?

well, i personally think that both technologies could have their uses. the obvious advantage of having a bar code is that it could be displayed non-electronically, and it could be really inexpensive to operate.

the problem, though, is that we are ...

Say hello to automatic BT scripts that send adware to your phone. Think about it... websites already use Internet Explorer to put adware onto your PC. What's to stop them from changing your phone's wallpaper to an animated gif that advertises something. Add porn sites to your contacts? This possibilities are unlimited! Hell... about change phone numbers in your contacts to certain US SHORTCODES that charge $1 per day to your wireless bill!
