Have cellphones abandoned the infrared?
Was wondering about this for some time now. IR was once a staple feature for connectivity options on mobile phones and it was even more common than Bluetooth.
Today, I almost never see infrared as a feature in the newer phones. Bluetooth survived but it looks like IR was totally forgotten. And I thought there was much more potential with transferring data thru light/lasers than radio signals, tech-wise.
I might be wrong though. There could be low-end models that still have IR in them. Has anybody bought a cellphone recently that has IR in it?
