Bluetooth 3.0(HS)-enabled handsets will top 300 million by 2013

Bluetooth 3.0+HS-enabled devices will account for 23% of all certified Bluetooth-enabled devices in 2010 and further climb to 61% in 2011, according to estimates from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).

Bluetooth 3.0+HS technology may initially be incorporated in external USB dongles for PC/notebook applications and then find its way into built-in modules for handsets, notebooks and other consumer electronics products.

By 2013, the number of handsets using Bluetooth 3.0+HS technology will top 300 million units, followed by PC systems at 60-70 million units, personal media players at 30-35 million units, external dongles at 10-15 million units and DSCs at 1-2 million units.
