Internet & Networking Most of my readers know that I love cellphones, PDAs and gadgets. Many of these gadgets do not have WiFi in them, but they do support the PAN-client Bluetooth profile which allows them to get wireless internet connectivity (e.g. the Palm Treo). To achieve this, you need to have a PAN-server. And this what Anycom's EDR-AP Bluetooth Access Point is all about.

Too bad that some WM5 devices (like Axim X51) have the MS Bluetooth stack and they don't support the PAN.

The nice thing about the BT (on the PDAs) is that consumes less energy than the wifi.

Note that in the case of the Axim X51v there is a broadcom-bt-stack replacement project (on aximsite.com) but I it does not work for me , -I have the dlink BT AP.
