The Wi-Fi Alliance announced a new wireless networking specification which will enable devices to establish simple peer-to-peer wireless connections without the need for a wireless router or hotspot. Wi-Fi Direct has a wide array of potential uses, many of which encroach on Bluetooth territory and threaten to make the competing wireless protocol obsolete.

The new spec, previously referred to by the codename ‘Wi-Fi peer-to-peer' (does it count as a ‘codename' if it is just called what it is in the simplest possible terms?), will be finalized soon and the Wi-Fi Alliance expects to begin certifying devices as Wi-Fi Direct compliant by mid-2010.

Good riddance, bluetooth was outdated, insecure, crap to say the least. Hopefully we see wifi radios become more common in small devices.

They should have bypassed the useless Bluetooth for this in the first place.
