BlueTooth Arrives: Compatibility Concerns
Initial testing shows that Bluetooth's promise of interoperability between all Bluetooth equipment, regardless of manufacturer, hasn't yet been delivered. In this first wave of Bluetooth products, it is difficult, if not impossible, to get two Bluetooth devices made by different companies to interact properly over the personal network.
For the consumer, this means you should beware. Don't buy any old Bluetooth product and expect it to work with your other Bluetooth devices. If possible, try a new Bluetooth product with your other Bluetooth equipment before you buy it. Or at least ask about the return policies for any Bluetooth product you buy.
