Motorola BT Car Kits

[Updated with T605 photo] Motorola used its presence at the SEMA car enthusiast show to announce the release of two new Bluetooth car kits. The first of these is the T305 (pictured), a cellphone-oriented hands-free speaker. It can fit easily in someone's palm, Motorola says, making it easy to carry in a pocket as well as useful for conversations outside a vehicle. Despite it size, the T305's battery is expected to last for approximately 14 hours between charges. It can also charge via USB from either a computer or a bundled USB-to-car adapter. Motorola is selling the T305 immediately for $80 online as well as in stores. Details of Motorola's new car kit for music are available after the jump.

Unveiled at the same time is the T605 (pictured below), a hybrid hands-free calling and music system that helps owners manage both their cellphones and audio devices. The device can pair a Bluetooth-equipped cellphone as well as any Bluetooth or 3.5mm minijack audio source to a compatible car audio system, routing the sound through the car's own speakers. As with many of these systems, the T605 can automatically pause music for incoming calls and resume when the call ends. However, the device is unique for its use of Bluetooth 2.0, which should help reduce the effect of interference, according to Motorola. The T605 will ship in early 2007 for an as yet undetermined price.
