Nokia Wireless Image

Nokia has recently introduced a Bluetooth headset for dedicated cellphone users. The Wireless Image Headset is intended not for music, but as an extension of the calling functions on most Bluetooth-enabled phones. Nokia's device hangs from the neck by a lanyard and relays call information to a 128x128 screen, saving the trouble of retrieving the phone itself from a pocket. A built-in joystick can be used to navigate and even edit contact information remotely. Hands-free calling is also possible through a combination of earbuds and voice-activated dialing.

A subtle but important feature of the Wireless Image Headset is its picture function, says Nokia. Since the device oocupies a conspicuous position when worn, the screen can display the owner's choice of images as either a wallpaper when idle or a photo slideshow for friends. The headset is shipping now for $300.
