SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Cirago International, a leading manufacturer of multimedia centers, storage and wireless solutions, today announced the launch of an exclusive new line of micro USB Bluetooth adapters compliant with Bluetooth specification 3.0 for improved handling of encryption keys and better power consumption management. The devices, Class 2 BTA3310 with a 10-meter (33-foot) range and Class 1 BTA6310 with 100-meter (330-foot) range, are some of the first Bluetooth 3.0 compliant devices on the market.

The Cirago Micro USB Bluetooth Adapters turn any USB 2.0 port into a Bluetooth data connection with full-speed operation and full Piconet and Scatternet support. The discreet devices - about the size of a thumbnail - are RoHS compliant and provide wireless connectivity for headsets, smart phones, mice and keyboards. Both are EDR compliant for both 2Mbps and 3Mbps modulation modes.

"These advanced Bluetooth adapters can help mobile business professionals reduce cord clutter and upgrade their Bluetooth connectivity to the newest standard at an affordable price," said Patrick Lo, President of Cirago. "They're ideal for adding to a laptop, netbook or any desktop PC and their low-profile design protects them against damage from bumps when using or transporting the machine."

Both feature stable, accurate device search capabilities with simplified multi-link setup making the addition of multiple Bluetooth devices quicker and easier than ever before. The included Motorola Driver Suite makes it easy to setup virtually any PC quickly and easily for advanced Bluetooth 3.0 capability. Each adapter comes with an installation disk for Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or 7. No additional software is required for Macintosh systems running Mac OS 10.4.7 and higher.

A member of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), Cirago is one of the few manufacturers to achieve certification to the official Bluetooth SIG standard. All Cirago adapters are Bluetooth SIG qualified to guarantee compliance to the latest Bluetooth standards and to ensure the highest product quality.

The Class 2 BTA3310 retails for just $29.99 MSRP, while the Class 1 BTA6310 offers ten times the range - up to 330 feet - for just $10 more at $39.99 MSRP. The devices will be available by the end of June at major electronics and consumer products retailers.
