Dell unveils Inspiron laptop with Bluetooth 3.0
Dell on Thursday announced the lightweight Inspiron M101z laptop with new technologies including Bluetooth 3.0 wireless capabilities and low-voltage processors from Advanced Micro Devices.
The optional Bluetooth 3.0 wireless feature should enable faster transfer of images or movies from the PC to devices like smartphones. Most laptops today come with Bluetooth 2.1 capabilities, but Bluetooth 3.0 transfers data wirelessly at faster speeds of up to 25M bps (bits per second). Bluetooth 3.0 piggybacks Wi-Fi connections to transfer short bursts of data between devices while drawing less power. The laptop comes with an 11.6-inch screen.
It also comes with Syncables Desktop software to synchronize data and multimedia files with mobile devices.
The laptop runs on AMD's Athlon II Neo Mobile single- and dual-core processors, which were announced earlier this year. The laptop will also be able to decode and play back high-definition video using AMD's ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 integrated graphics.
