Wireless USB 1.1 aims for 1 GB per sec

The wireless USB initiative announced that they are aiming Certified Wireless USB 1.1 to achieve transfer speed upto 1 GBps for the distance upto 3 meters which is stratosphere away from the first generation Wireless USB which offer just 40 MBps !

Certified wireless USB developed by the Wireless USB Promoter Group (Agere Systems, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Microsoft, NEC Corporation, Philips and Samsung) was seen as the annihilator of Blue Tooth but guess what Blue tooth is alive and kicking.

It also will adopt the techniques of near field communications (NFC) which enables the communication between devices over a short distance for letting two devices identify themselves to each other with a simple contact.
