    With February 9th steadily approaching, many of us, myself included, are wondering what that day will bring.

    While we know of the obvious (ie announcements of Tablets, smartphones and roadmap of "other devices"), we can't hekp but wonder how they will bring it all together.

    There are many ways HP can keep the devices interconnected.
    One such way is 3G/4G/WiFi sync through your HP profile. The problem with this method is speed/latency/availability and above all else relliance on carriers data restrictions. See MS Kin. (remember data has to be uploaded from device A and downloaded to devices B, C & D.)

    So how do we have constant talking between devices?
    Bluetooth? Ala Bberry playbook?
    Well that may work well for just PIM.. But what about files.. Docs.. MEDIA???

    Step up to the plate WiFi Direct.
    Wifi direct will the need for an access point, allowing precertified devices to sync with each other without the worries of security or bandwidth. Better abd faster data transger speeds than bluetoth and longer range.

    I would post more about this but I'm mobile..

    I believe this isgoing to be a big part of Feb 9th... It's all existing tech. Minimal investment..

    Thoughts?

    Does wifi direct require more advanced hardware than is currently available (pre, pixi etc) I hope they don't plan on alienating people...

    But then again, anyone who sticks who with the old stuff for this long should be used to geting left out...

    How is it used? Imagine syncing your mobile device or laptop to a printer, digital photo frame, or TV without connecting to a Wi-Fi network. No worry about SSIDs or passwords to access them.

Products bearing the Wi-Fi Direct certification mark can connect to one another without joining a traditional home, office or hotspot network.

    Mobile phones, cameras, printers, PCs, and gaming devices can now connect to each other directly to transfer content and share applications quickly and easily. Devices can make a one-to-one connection, or a group of several devices can connect simultaneously. Connecting Wi-Fi Direct-certified devices is easy and simple, in many cases only requiring the push of a button. Moreover, all Wi-Fi Direct connections are protected by WPA2, the latest Wi-Fi security technology. With Wi-Fi Direct, you do not need an access point or internet connection - Your personal WiFi network goes with you where ever you go.
