Who uses their IR port?

11 June 2006

A Treocentral topic inspired this post. One of the members, a new 700p owner, is trying to find a use for every feature on his new device Here’s my take. I think nowadays, bluetooth is the new IR. Most devices come with BT so sending stuff is not only easier ( no lining up ) it’s faster, and can be done from farther away. I doubt IR will be around in PDA/smartphone form for long. The 750p, or whatever the next Treo will be called, is likely to omit this feature. Bluetooth is simply widespread enough to finally make IR obselete. In my opinion, it’s about time.
