Qualcomm develops chip for Bluetooth

Qualcomm said Thursday that it has developed the world's first chip that uses Bluetooth software for next-generation cell phones. Bluetooth is a wireless technology that lets devices interact with each other, but only if they are within the range of about the distance of a city block. The San Diego-based chipmaker, however, did not say when it will begin shipping the chip, known as the MSM1000. The chip is meant for cell phones that work on next-generation telephone networks using the Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) telephone standard.
