As Wi Fi takes off in Australia, several vendors are set to release products that allow users to transfer content between Wi-Fi-enabled devices without having to set up a Wi-Fi router.

The technology which will replace Bluetooth was ratified late last year when the Wi-Fi Alliance began certifying consumer electronic gadgets that can connect directly to other Wi-Fi devices.

Devices marked with the new Wi-Fi Direct label can connect to older Wi-Fi devices. Mobile phones, cameras, printers, PCs and gaming devices can now connect to each other directly to transfer content and share applications.

Devices can make a one-to-one connection, or a group of several devices can connect simultaneously. How this might work: Your Wi-Fi Direct device will signal to other devices in the area that it can make a connection. You can view available devices and ask them to connect, or you might receive an invitation to connect to another Wi-Fi Direct device.

Chipmakers including Intel, Broadcom and Atheros have already announced Wi-Fi Direct products. If Wi-Fi Direct takes off, Bluetooth technology could face problems in the future in Australia.
