Samsung Galaxy S Certified World’s First WiFi Direct Smartphone

Samsung is having immense success with the Galaxy S. Apart from getting great reviews, great sales etc, it now has another thing to rejoice about. The Galaxy S has been certified as the world’s first Wi-Fi Direct smartphone.It was given this certificate by the Wi-Fi Alliance in Japan which certified it capable of Wi-Fi Direct and made it the first smartphone on the list.

Wi-Fi Direct enables you to interconnect Wi-Fi capable devices without a wireless access point acting as a central hub, for quick P2P connections for media and gaming. This is really important as more devices have Wi-Fi as compared to Bluetooth.

Another bonus point of this technology is that only 1 device is the sharing has to be Wi-Fi Direct capable.
