Re: Infrared Port for .... ?
- Data exchange with other IrDA devices, mainly PDAs and mobile phones
- Wireless Internet with GPRS/EDGE/etc connections
- Wireless printing on certain IrDA-equipped printers (I have one. Tried it
and it didn't work too well.)
- HP even sold an IrDA 'access point' that only supported Windows 95, or
rather, Microsoft only supported IrDA networking (IrLAN) in Windows 95.
IrDA is gradually losing ground to Bluetooth. Many newer mobile PCs don't
even have IrDA ports.
