Bluetooth 2.0 adapters from Iogear

Bluetooth 2.0 is here and many devices are using every megabit of wireless bandwidth they can get from it, this is why Iogear is releasing a couple of adapters to bring older 1.1 and 1.2 Bluetooth spec users up to speed.

Both Iogear dongles will offer Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity (as well as backward compatibility to older devices sporting the 1.1 or 1.2 standard), and Extended Data Rate, or EDR capable of up to 2.1Mbps. The cheaper option–the so-called “Class 2 adapter”–has a 66-foot range, 4dbm transmission power and retails for $39.95. The ever-so-slightly more expensive option–as you can guess, this is the “Class 1 adapter”–features an impressive 330-foot range, 20dbm transmission power and can be purchased for $49.95.
