Nokia’s boxy Bluetooth headset coming soon


Tired of sporting a generic made in China headset? Well, if you have yourself a Bluetooth-capable Nokia, you will soon be able to get the company’s square-form BH-800 as the FCC has officially approved the Bluetooth headset. You might not even notice this thing on your ear as it is feather light at a mere 9 grams.

Battery life is more than adequate with 6 hours of talk time and 160 hours of standby time, after you’ve charged it up for about 2 hours. It’ll run on just about any Nokia mobile as it supports Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, Handsfree 1.5, and Headset 1.1 standards. Other features include volume control, an optional ear loop, and the ability to pair up with up to 8 devices (one at a time, of course).

As with any officially branded products, the Nokia BH-800 Bluetooth headset will cost you more than the generic brands out there. Expect to pay in the neighbourhood of $140 for one of these puppies, available in either coffee black or silver white.
