View Full Version : Connecting p800 to PC

I wont bang on about the various rumours of when this thing is to be released cos that gets rather boring.

I was wondering if any of you obsessives out there know if i could connect the p800 to a PC via bluetooth and stream MP3's stored on my PC through the phone. I know this seems a slightly pointless question but might it be something that could be done with clever software that might come out at some point?

Also, i wont mention names, but can we ban the use of "....man..." at random points during posts. Its very irritating. Or is this just traditional Hong Kong dialect that I fail to grasp.

I don't think the transfer rate of bluetooth is fast enough to stream MP3s, or that MP3s can be streamed at all, for that matter. Even transferring an MP3 via Bluetooth will take longer than it takes to play the file, man. ;)

Well bluetooth has a transfer rate of up to 1Mbps which must be enough for an MP3 encoded at a reasonable rate - like 96kbs. Its not as if the quality needs to be glistening with musical elegance it is only a mobile phone. I was asking more about the p800 capability - you must be able to stream from the internet - so why not over bluetooth?
