 Getting On-line Anywhere with Bluetooth and GPRS

"Bluetooth and GPRS, when used in tandem, let traditionally dumb devices become intelligent. A Bluetooth-enabled blood pressure or heart-rate monitor can use a nearby Bluetooth-aware cell phone to send the readings instantly to a doctor's computer over the Internet by way of GPRS. A Bluetooth MP3 player can be programmed to download songs using GPRS through a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone at night, when the rates are lower. GPRS thus extends the Internet to the increasing number of small and low-power Bluetooth products that do not have conventional network capability."
