Aliph Jawbone Prime arrives in candy colorsIt’s been nearly a year since we last saw a Bluetooth headset from Aliph. But now it’s back with the Jawbone Prime.

Inside there’s the addition of Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR (multipoint connections, easy pairing), plus some algorithm tweaks of NoiseAssassin 2.0 to improve noise reduction.

The Prime will be replacing existing Jawbones for $130, and comes in Blah Blah Black, Coffee Talk and Going Platinum, while an “EARCANDY” edition is available in Frankly SCARLET, ‘YELLO!, Drop Me A LIME and LILAC You Mean It.

blueant020-sbI’m not a big fan of Bluetooth headsets personally; I prefer to just hold my phone to my ear. However, in some states you have to use hands free devices to be able to use cell phones while driving. If you live in one of those states, a Bluetooth hands free kit or headset is required.

BlueAnt has announced a new Bluetooth headset called the Q1 that has some very interesting features. The most important feature is that the device can be controlled using voice commands. The headset responds to spoken commands like redial, call back, answer/ignore call, and check battery.

HyundaiWhat do you do when people are no longer buying cars due to the economy being in the toilet? You get the hell out, that’s what. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll make something that people are still buying. Like phones and watches. If you’re Hyundai you offer both in one package.

The MB-910 timepiece is actually a tri-band GSM/GPRS mobile phone with around three hours of talk time, 70 hours on standby and polyphonic ringtones. No video calls sadly, but it does have a 132 x 176 touchscreen able to display WAP-captured content, SMS and MMS messages, and videos.

Bluetribe Bluetooth 2.1 headphonesBluetribe is a new pair of Bluetooth 2.1 headphones with a distinctly unique look from Sigma-Apo of Japan. It will sell with ear pads designed to fit most ears.

The headphones can operate wirelessly with your iPod for up to 8 hours. They should be available at the end of this month for about 9,980 yen or $112. Looks like these may be a Japan-only deal though.
