Slider cell phones are definitely rising in popularity, especially those made by LG and Samsung, so it only makes sense that the sliding mechanism get implemented in related technology as well. I’d imagine that the i.Tech i.Slider Bluetooth Headset isn’t the first to headset to feature a sliding mechanism, but it is pretty cool that you can use that to answer and end calls.
It’s an active slider, much like what you’d find on the LG Chocolate or the Samsung U700. When a call comes in, you simply extend the microphone boom and start yakking. When you’re done explaining where you were last night, you retract the boom and continue on with your day. For those you who don’t like the slider, there is also a multifunction button like most other Bluetooth headsets. Then again, if you don’t like the slider, you probably wouldn’t buy this device anyways.
Other notable specs include the ability to connect to two phones simultaneously, a weight of 9.5 grams, Bluetooth v2.0 Class 2, up to 4 hours of talk time, up to 80 hours of standby, and your choice of silver or purple-black.
