Bluetooth is NOT the bottleneck!

This is interesting and it's nice to see faster transfer rates, but for most pda users the bottlneck is their mobile phones with pokey gprs or cdma, not bluetooth! The faster transfer rates will be nice for things like BT syncing etc, but unless there's wider adoption of 3G solutions by mobile providers, most users won't be able to take advantage of these new BT chips imo...

I support

Indeed! Talk about the answer to a question nobody asked.

If you want to use Bluetooth for hotsync, file transfer, printing, net connectivity (without modem)... then it IS the bottleneck.
Of course, as the speed goes up, new uses will appear for it. And anyway, a faster transfer means a shorter connection, which means less battery used...
