Amid the various upgrades announced for Apple’s new iPad was a hot new wireless technology. You might think I’m referring to the tablet’s 4G LTE mobile broadband support, but I’m not. I’m talking about the far less sexy, but no less important, inclusion of Bluetooth 4.0, making iPad the first Bluetooth Smart Ready tablet.
Ben Brooks has rightly pointed out that Bluetooth 4.0 could pave the way for a wave of energy efficient accessories for Apple devices. I had just been re-considering a Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad, but this has convinced me to wait.
