Our phones will soon become a means of connecting the analog to the digital world of the web, and the way your wireless headset communicates with your phone, or the way your Nike shoes talk to your iPod, is shaping up to be the next standards fight for chip and device makers. But before smartphones can make the leap as our analog-to-digital converters, they need a means to transmit data from sensors to the phone. That means wireless protocols like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Direct, ANT and other proprietary flavors of networks will be the players in the big wireless standards war of 2011.
