Bluetooth is an industrial specification for wireless personal area networks (PANs). Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, laptops, PCs, printers, digital cameras, and video game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed short-range radio frequency. The Bluetooth specifications are developed and licensed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group.
Bluetooth is a standard and communications protocol primarily designed for low power consumption, with a short range (power-class-dependent: 1 meter, 10 meters, 100 meters)[1] based on low-cost transceiver microchips in each device.

Bluetooth enables these devices to communicate with each other when they are in range. The devices use a radio communications system, so they do not have to be in line of sight of each other, and can even be in other rooms, as long as the received transmission is powerful enough.

Bluetooth is the name of a wireless technology standard for connecting devices, set to replace cables. It uses radio frequencies to transfer data over a very short distance- not more than 30 feet.
By embedding a Bluetooth chip and receiver into products, cables that would normally carry the signal can be eliminated.

Bluetooth is a mobile wireless technology that enables devices like mobile phones, laptops, video gaming consoles, etc. to send and receive information between themselves through wireless personal area networks (WPANs). It allows this kind of exchange of data globally on a short wave radio frequency that is not licensed. This frequency is the 2.4 GHz industrial-scientific-medical (ISM) band. This bandwidth was first set up by mobile communications giant Ericsson. There is also the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, whose responsibility it is to develop and license its required specifications. The SIG consists of four leading industry members in these fields Toshiba, Nokia, IBM, and Intel. The technology derives its name from that of a Danish king called herald Bluetooth. The Infrared device is different from the Bluetooth. It complements the Bluetooth and is developed by the Infrared Data Association (IrDA). The Bluetooth is not a substitute for Infrared, but merely an enhancement.
