    iPod Touch is a very good mobile handset, it is able to play musics, movies, tweeting, view & edit files, read & write email.

    But sometimes when you are not in the house, you do not have a laptop in hand, you may take out your iPod and search for Wifi networks ...

    Have you ever wondering if your iPod is able to connect to mobile phones and access the GPRS/EDGE/3G networks?

    Now, the answer is YES.


    Most of the guys will say: Why not use the web browser on the phone?

    If you have played iPod/iPhone for a while, you will found that most of the mobile web browser suck. It is very hard to use. :-(

    Others may ask, why not buy an iPhone?

    1. This is a very good question, but some of us already bought a iPod Touch. It is the reality.
    2. And iPhone is very expensive in some countries. for example, iPhone sold by China Unicom is WiFi-less.. Will you buy?

    Another question: There is some other programs on the phones, which are able to create a WiFi hotspot on your phone, why I need to go bluetooth?

    Yes, this is a solution before the birthday of iBluever. But you need a phone like this:
    1. It has to be WiFi enabled.
    2. It is able to install complex applications (Java applications can not achieve this).
    3. And this application have to be running, it is not energy efficient.
    The final question: What are the advantages of Bluetooth DUN?

    1. Most of bluetooth enabled phone support Bluetooth Dial-up Networking (a.k.a. DUN)
    2. You do not have to run a damon on your phone, you just turn on bluetooth
    3. Compare to WiFi, it is more energy efficient (Bluetooth signal can be received in a few meters, often less then ten, but WiFi covers tens of meters.)
    4. More to come ...

    For more information, please visit http://ibluever.blogspot.com/

    It is not released yet, I am adding new features:
    1. More carrier support
    2. Auto connect
    3. Sleep bluetooth controller while springboard is locked
    4. Recover connection after springboard is unlocked
    5. Bluetooth low power support

    It is not the native bluetooth stack...

    So I will have to add additional code to support bluetooth icon on statusbar.
