The official Bluetooth Gadget Guide

The online Bluetooth Gadget Guide’s been designed by the Bluetooth SIG - the body behind the standard - to “help consumers match their current Bluetooth enabled devices to companion products”.

For example, type 'W595' into the website’s search facility and up pops a list of 25 Bluetooth gadgets that are deemed compatible with the Sony Ericsson Walkman phone – reviewed here. The group’s list covers everything from the MacBook Pro to a Logitech portable speaker.

Access to the Bluetooth Gadget Guide is free and available now online through the Bluetooth SIG’s website.
