What is Wi-Fi Direct?

Soon the market will be flooded with devices toting Wi-Fi Direct capabilities. Now is the time to read up on the new lingo. Let's just hope Wi-Fi Direct isn't a failure like the first Wireless USB device I had my hands on in 2007.

In a nutshell the Wi-Fi Direct moniker describes a peer-to-peer networking version of the Wi-Fi standard. Think ad-hoc Wi-Fi that actually works and has better range and throughput. Devices officially supporting Wi-Fi Direct will no-doubt receive a big sticker boasting its new capabilities: "Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Wi-Fi Direct."

Bluetooth might want to watch out.
