A9 gets bluetooth

Posted by Andrew Duffell on 19:41, 3/4/2006 | , , , , ,
 
Bluetooth LogoAdvantage Six have been in touch with news about the long awaited A9 computer that will run a 32bit version of RISC OS Adjust. The team at Advantage6 are now focusing on connectivity, and will be demonstrating a integrated bluetooth proof-of-concept at this years Wakefield Show.

A spokesman for A6 told us "Traditionally the Wakefield Show is where we take the opportunity to demonstrate the potential cross-overs between our OEM and the retail market. Although the body of the work has been done to meet specific OEM requirements, the core design is based on the same components as the A9home - and Advantage6 have retained the rights to this, meaning that - given sufficient demand - broader support could be developed and offered as an upgrade to existing A9home owners."

Something I'd like to see in a machine like this is 802.11g wifi. With wifi being so wide spread, it makes sense in such a portable machine.

I think that Bluetooth is a good step towards that - IIRC it requires a change to the network stack to make wireless connections, which will help both projects.

Or, buy a wireless adapter that plugs in to the (wired) network socket ;)
