O2's long-lived headset

British carrier O2 is continuing a spate of new product releases with the O2 blue, a Bluetooth headset with an extremely long battery life. Active talk time is 15.5 hours, and standby time can extend to as much as 22 days. For comparison, Sony's high-performance HBV-100 can only manage 12 hours of talking and 12.5 days of standby. The blue also has three quick-dial buttons and comes with a USB charger. O2 is selling the headset in its British retail stores for 50 ($99); for a limited time, the standard black version is being complemented by a white one, which comes with a stuffed polar bear.
