The I-O Data Mini Keyboard might be for you if you find that you can’t type quickly with the keypad on your cell phone. It connects with your handset via Bluetooth and allows you to type away as if you were using a standard QWERTY computer keyboard.

Granted, you will look like strange typing on this, but what are you gonna do? If you do need this device, you probably have a ton of e-mails you want to deal with while on-the-go, in which case it’s an ideal solution. Or maybe you’re just addicted to SMS. No word on price just yet or availability.

Posted in Bluetooth by Shane McGlaun on April 1st, 2008

Sound ID HD300I’m not a big fan of Bluetooth headsets in most instances. Sure they are welcome and much safer when driving in a car than holding your phone up to your ear. However, when you are walking around at the mall just stop being lazy and put the phone up to your ear so we don’t all think you are crazy.

That said I realize some people won’t stop using them when walking at the mall, so this is for you. Sound ID announced its latest Bluetooth headset today called the HD300. Sound ID says that the device was created with the help of hearing specialists and top acoustic scientists.

Bluetooth microphone dental insert
Here’s something you don’t see everyday. The Bluetooth Dental Insert Microphone is described as the “ultimate bluetooth handsfree”. It’s a super small microphone packaged with solar panel and battery to provide the most portable unit yet. The composite resin filling is designed to fit in a hole 2.2mm in diameter and 1.7 mm deep(presumably replacing a tooth.) and it will pick up sound and vibrations from your mouth thereby producing super clear sound.

The earpiece features replaceable rubber grips and attractive chrome inserts and is compatible with all Bluetooth capable phones with Handsfree and Headset profiles. No word on pricing just yet, but the Bluetooth Dental Insert Microphone will be available soon from those wacky people over at Chinavision. As they point out, “All dental work should be performed by a qualified dentist, Chinavasion does not take responsibility for injury resulting from the installation of this product”.

Jabra dog tag bluetooth set
Jabra has launched a somewhat interesting looking bluetooth set. The BT3030 resembles the famous dog tag, worn by the likes of Rambo and and the rest of the army. I haven’t seen the latest Rambo movie, but if he wanted to be a bit more like Bond, he’d have something like this.

It comes with bluetooth 2.0+EDR, HSP, HFP, A2DP and AVRCP support, six buttons for sending / ending calls and controlling music playback, as well as volume control. Get the BT303 next month in Japan or the U.S for $90. I would imagine this gives the army some ideas about updating the original dog tag.

CB Radios get Bluetooth
It’s amazing that the CB radio has not already been given the Bluetooth treatment. Well, now there is a Bluetooth-enabled CB radio, so the CB can keep on truckin’. 10-4 good buddy. Cobra Electronics 29 LTD BT CB radio is Bluetooth-enabled, allowing truckers everywhere(and others of course) to receive cell phone calls wirelessly into the CB unit.

It even comes with a noise canceling microphone perfect for truckers. Those trucks aren’t exactly quiet you know. Tactile controls let the driver feel where the dial currently is in its rotation, so the driver no longer has to take his eyes off the road. The 29 LTD BT will be available this summer for $189.95. Until then, I’ll catch ya on the flip side. Keep the bugs off yer glass and the bears off yer tail.

Princeton Bluetooth adapter measures under an inch long but had a 300 foot rangeAlthough the picture might make it look bigger, this little Bluetooth adapter from Tokyo’s Princeton corporation actually measures just 23mm x 4.5mm x 14mm. It connects via USB 2.0 your computer to give you a wireless Bluetooth connection with a range of around 300 feet.

Posted in BlueAnt,Bluetooth,CES 2008,Speakers by Darrin Olson on January 9th, 2008

BlueAnt M1 Bluetooth speakersAustralia based BlueAnt recently unveiled a new wireless Bluetooth speaker this week at CES in Las Vegas, bringing a quality Bluetooth speaker product that’s completely wireless for a $199 price tag.

The BlueAnt M1 features an output of 28 watts RMS, rechargeable batteries that will run the device for around 10 hours at a medium volume level, and is compatible with any Bluetooth A2DP device including computers, PDA’s and mobile phones.

Joby Zivio headset with retractable “boom”

Posted in Bluetooth,CES 2008,Headsets by Darrin Olson on January 7th, 2008

Joby Zivio Bluetooth headsetWhile most Bluetooth headsets we’ve seen lately are concerned with being discrete and then coming up with elaborate technology to focus on only noise from your moth, Joby is coming out with a new model that helps state the obvious when you are on a call. The new Zivio Bluetooth headset is being showcased by Joby at this year’s CES in Las Vegas this week, and features a long antenna like “boom” with a microphone at the end.

The headset is still relatively small at 13 grams and a length of 53.5mm, but with the microphone extended it more than doubles the overall length bringing it up to 137mm. The headset will continue to work with the microphone boom retracted, but when you receive a call and extend the telephone operator-like mic, it will improve your voice clarity and help drown out other background noise, not to mention leave those around you in no doubt that you are taking a call.
