Supertooth Light BT Kit
SGS is planning a new Bluetooth hands-free calling device with unique features, according to a recently uncovered FCC approval. The documents show an adapter with an extendable microphone boom with active noise cancellation, which should help improve audio clarity over other, one-piece designs. The Supertooth Light also has a high-capacity lithium-ion battery that runs for as much as 15 hours on a single charge, roughly 50% longer than most rivals. A mini-USB port is also present to give owners the choice of recharging the battery directly from their PC instead of a dedicated AC adapter. No launch information is revealed in the filing, though FCC approval is often a precedent to a formal release.
