How Bluetooth Got Its Name

King Bluetooth

Jim Kardach is in the Bluetooth Hall of Fame, his foray into the technology began in the mid-90’s while at Intel he was tasked with bringing to market a new short range PC radio network standard.

At EETimes, Jim writes about some of the behind the scenes details when Intel, Nokia and Ericsson joined forces to develop a single network standard as opposed to their own short range radio technologies. And it sounds like deciding on the name may have been the most challenging aspect!
