Bluetooth iPod gateway

Tekkeon has announced that myTalker, which the company claims is the first Bluetooth gateway for iPod, is available in stores. The small device pairs with any Bluetooth mobile phone to enable users of MP3 players--such as Apple's iPod--to make and receive calls while listening to music. Rather than requiring a dedicated headset, myTalker uses the music headphones to carry phone call audio. The microphone, which clips to a shirt or collar, and the phone controls are built into myTalker, negating the need for direct access to the phone. Buttons on myTalker enable users to increase, decrease, or mute the call volume, or use advanced calling features such as last number redial, voice dialing, conference, and call waiting. MyTalker is available for $80, and is compatible with all iPods, as well as any MP3 player equipped with a standard audio jack.
