December 2, 2005 For a long time, BlueTooth's most notable feature was its marketplace absence that was in direct contrast to the hype, but after a very slow start, it is gathering momentum like a runaway train. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has announced that the Bluetooth market has passed the impressive milestone of 9.5 million Bluetooth units shipping per week. In May, the shipment figures were 4.75 million per week according to IMS Research and in September -- only four months later -- this figure had doubled, exceeding even the most optimistic analyst projections. Serving as an advocate to the industry as well as the consumer, the Bluetooth SIG has designed a number of consumer programs in order to satisfy the needs of the booming market and further secure a first-class user experience of Bluetooth wireless technology.
