Hello ababaei2000,

Bluetooth is not yet available. Official suggestion :roll: :
- Simply fake some Bluetooth events in a hard-coded configuration file
or class. You could start a timer in a background thread, and read a new
"event" from your fake Bluetooth stream every 100 milliseconds (or
whatever's appropriate.)


IrDa (Infrared) is not even mentioned in the SDK at all. (I hope there will be some interface in the future)

Regards,

Infrared

So what do you think you will use IrDA for that Bluetooth cannot give you?

Do you know about IrSimple, the new faster standard from IrDA?
Peer-to-peer fast multimedia file sharing - I think this is what Android needs.

I'd like to have a universal remote control :)

Do phones still come with IrDa?

IrDA phones

From what I have been able to find out, there are a new range using the IrSimple branding from IrDA. These new gen ones use 4Mbps - really fast. Mostly from Japan now. It's no longer for beaming business cards! high quality photos, music and video is the thing to do now - in Japan!!

Yes, there has been quite a lot of IrDA phones for a while, mostly using 115kbps (hence the lack of interest). I think Nokia's N80 uses 1Mbps.

Anyway, here is a list I have time to find: :)
