I’m not entirely sure why someone would consider a product like this, when I’m sure a more discrete Bluetooth headset can be had for the same price (if not less) and can be used just about anywhere. Maybe I’m not the target audience. In any case, Motorola has just issued a press release for the company’s new T305 Bluetooth handsfree car kit, allowing people to maintain their mobile conversations while keeping both hands on the wheel and both eyes on the road ahead.
The Motorola T305 runs on a speedy Bluetooth 2.0 connection and will mate up with any compatible cell phone, blasting out the other end of the conversation through its 1 watt speakerphone. The large multi-purpose button can be used to activate voice dialling, answer a phone call, or hang up as needed. The big M has included “enhanced echo and noise reduction technology” here as well. Battery life is reported to be 12 hours worth of talk time, or 200 hours of standby.
Expect the Motorola T305 portable Bluetooth car kit to start shipping in the second half of this year. Pricing has not yet been announced: they’re telling us to “check with your local Motorola representative”.
