Wi-fi is a wireless data networking protocol, which allows for PCs and laptops to access the internet, within a given area or "hotspot", via a high frequency wireless local area network (WLAN). The term Wi-Fi was coined by the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA) as another name for IEEE 802.11b networking standard. WECA is still involved in certifying new wireless modems in order to verify that they are fully compatible with the standard.

Bluetooth headsets

Bluetooth was designed to offer easy cross platform connectivity between devices. The true purpose of Bluetooth was creating a unified platform from which multiple devices could be operated using a single Bluetooth enabled device. Today, one of the leading applications of Bluetooth technology is making Bluetooth headsets and Motorola has pioneered the Bluetooth headset market. Motorola was one of the first companies to offer Bluetooth headsets with A2DP technology, and is also the market leader in making low cost, high quality Bluetooth headsets. If you want to buy a pair of Motorola Bluetooth headsets, then here are a few tips to help you choose a pair of Bluetooth headsets.

Before you begin your search for a Bluetooth headset, you should read the technical specifications of your mobile phone. Newer mobile phones are equipped with a technology called A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), A2DP allows mobile phones to stream audio in stereo using Bluetooth. If your phone supports A2DP, then you might want to buy a pair of stereo headsets like the S9 (also known as the Snook). The S9 has become immensely popular for its design, and the S9 is perhaps one of the most inconspicuous stereo Bluetooth headsets available today.

You can also play, pause and navigate tracks using the S9. If you do not want stereo Bluetooth headsets or if your phone does not support A2DP, there are many non-stereo headsets available. The first thing to look for in a Bluetooth Headset is talk time, most Bluetooth headsets offer a talk time of about 5-6 hours. However, the latest Motorola headset the H681 offers a talk time of up to 8 hours.

In addition, it is important to look at the operating distance of the headset, most Bluetooth 2.0 headsets can work for up to 10 meters, make sure the headset you are buying also has a similar operating distance. Another popular headset in the market is the H9, the H9 is perhaps one of the smallest Bluetooth headsets in the market. Unlike regular Bluetooth headsets that are designed to be worn around the ear, the H9 is similar to an ear bud in dimension.

The H9 is designed to be placed inside the ear lobe and at 7.5 grams and a dimension of just 1.2 x .91 inches makes the H9 one of the most discreet Bluetooth headsets available today. The H9 has a talk time of 7.5 hours and comes equipped with ear tips that help in providing a comfortable fit.

Another popular headset is the HS850; the HS850 comes equipped with a mini 'boom' that can be retracted and offers fantastic voice clarity even in the noisiest conditions. Although all Motorola headsets are ergonomic and designed to be worn on either ear, it is important to check if the headset you are buying can be worn on either ear. Motorola headsets offer state of the art facilities like noise cancellation and automatic noise reduction. Also make sure all standard accessories like chargers are a part of the product package.

If you are planning on buying stereo Bluetooth headsets, there are 3 Motorola models you can choose from, the first is the S9, and the second headset is the HS830. The HS830 is a quality Bluetooth headset that comes with a unique helmet adaptor and is ideal for two wheeler enthusiasts. The HS830 has a talk time of 6 hours and comes with a special neck strap that has an inbuilt microphone. A very popular and affordable stereo Bluetooth headset is the HT820, the HT820 is not as inconspicuous as the S9, but has a music listening time of nearly 14 hours and allows music functions like play, pause and easy navigation between music tracks. If you cannot afford the S9, the most economical option is the HT820.
