Does your device support Harald Blatand ?

Rick Kollmeyer: What's in a name: Bluetooth:
In doing some research on Bluetooth technology, I found this article on the origins of the Bluetooth name. Turns out it is named after a 10th century Danish King Harald Blatand, and the Bluetooth runic symbol is made of up his initials.

  1. He christened the Danes too. Very cool guy (though he was supposedly killed by his own son, and that has got to suck).
