Origin of name and logo

The name comes from the Danish and Norwegian King Harald Blatand whose English translation would be Harold Bluetooth (Blue Tooth, but in Danish means’ dark skinned ‘) known for good communicator and to unify the tribes Norwegian, Swedish and Danish.
In the same way, trying to unite different Bluetooth technologies like those in computers, mobile phones and other peripherals.
Bluetooth is a symbol of the union of the Nordic runes analogous to B and H: (Hagall) and (Berkane).
Although the 1.0A version of the Bluetooth specification was published in July 1999, years before most notably in 1994 Ericsson initiated a study to investigate the possibility of an interface via radio, low cost and low power consumption, for interconnection between mobile and other accessories with the intention to eliminate cables between devices. The study took a long project investigating some multicomunicadores connected to a cellular network, until you get to a radio link, short range, called the MC link. As this project progressed it was clear watching this type of link could be widely used in many applications because it had as its main virtue which is based on a relatively inexpensive radio chip. In early 1997, according to the project forward link MC, Ericsson was attracted interest from other manufacturers laptops. Soon it became clear that for the system to succeed, a lot of equipment should be equipped with this technology. This was originated in February 1998, the creation of a group called Special Interest Group (SIG) formed by 5 promoters were Ericsson, Nokia, IBM, Toshiba and Intel. The idea was to achieve an appropriate mix of business, two leaders of the telecommunications market, two market leaders in portable PCs and a leader in manufacturing chips. The main purpose of the consortium was and is, to establish a standard for air interface together with its control software, to ensure interoperability of equipment between different manufacturers. Later in December 1999 joined the initiative, Microsoft, 3Com, Axis Communication, Compaq, Dell, Motorola, Xircom, Lucent and other audiences to turn a new version of the technology known as 1.0b. In February of 2000 as evidence of the rapid development of Bluetooth and more than 1500 companies are adhering to the GIS group. And of course still running new versions adapting new enhancements that appear, the latest release is version 2.0. The promoters and promoters of this technology have decided to put a name that could be made popular, instead of a classification technique. Thought of a Scandinavian king, Harald II dubbed Blatand or ‘blue-tooth’ (Bluetooth) who rules over Denmark and Norway in the tenth century and that several villages and kingdoms united under a new religion, the cristiana.Saludos andalusia Prof Jorge Chaves Nava.OscarTA3521
