“Bluetooth technology is the most widely installed short-range wireless technology, and because of that, the Bluetooth SIG Best of CES Awards program is reviewing products from every hot CE category,” said Michael Foley, Ph.D., executive director of the Bluetooth SIG. “With over three billion Bluetooth enabled devices available worldwide, we expect to see the permeation of Bluetooth technology increase in the coming years. Product designers, and consumers alike, are going to want to connect all of their devices – and Bluetooth technology is the proven, successful, secure way to do just that.”
On Friday, 7th January, the category winners and the overall winner will be announced during the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) , event held at the Tweet House It Won’t Stay in Vegas party.
