GN Netcom, through its Jabra headset brand, announced today a new speakerphone for in-car use. It is called the Jabra SP700 and it prices around $100.
The Jabra SP700 transmits cell phone calls to a car’s FM radio for hands-free communications. One clips the speakerphone to a visor, connects it to the phone via Bluetooth and tunes FM radio to the frequency set on the speakerphone. On cars with RDS enabled stereos the caller’s phone number will be displayed and this device also hosts an audio feature that lets users know when the speakerphone status changes, announcing instructions such as ‘power off’, ‘the incoming caller’s number’ and ‘connected’ in a choice of ten languages. It is available now.
