Ericsson Pulls Bluetooth

Poor Bluetooth. A technology that even now, fights for its very existence. Ericsson has reluctantly decided that they are going to have to cease and desist on any future Bluetooth phones for the time being.

Ericsson posted an announcement about the move on its Website, saying that: “Even though large volumes are manufactured, the business case for Ericsson’s design of new Bluetooth solutions is not strong enough.”

The Swedish vendor says that is forming a new unit to support existing Bluetooth silicon customers and that its mobile units will continue to offer Bluetooth software.
