    Galaxy S now WiFi Direct certified

    As I understand it, WiFi Direct devices can communicate with each other without the need for a hotspot. The Samsung Galaxy S is the first smartphone to receive this certification. Sounds like lots of new possibilities to me! Here's a link to the story at Android Central:

    This is cool, I saw this on Engadget yesterday but didn't really understand what it meant to become certified. It is my understanding that this will be pushed out as an update to make it reality. Or am I totally off base?

    The research I did indicated that WiFi Direct is its own set of protocols (kind of like Bluetooth, from what I could tell), so only WiFi Direct certified devices can talk to each other if there's no hotspot available.
