The next version of Microsoft's operating system for mobile devices will support the Bluetooth communication technology, writes Daniel Thomas.

Windows CE.net, code named Talisker, was qualified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group as compliant with the Bluetooth specification after extensive testing with existing products and examination of the software.

Bluetooth is a short-range radio technology that allows mobile devices to communicate wirelessly within 10 metres of one another.

Microsoft also announced that mobile handset maker Siemens and peripherals provider Socket Communications are developing Bluetooth CE.net-based products.

Until now, Microsoft has been unenthusiastic about Bluetooth. The technology is not natively supported in Windows XP, although Microsoft said that when devices/drivers become available for testing it will circulate them through the Windows Update service.
