Parrot brings Party, speakerphone to North America

updated 03:15 pm EDT, Wed June 27, 2007

Party, PMK5800 in N. Am.

Bluetooth specialist Parrot is bringing two previously-announced accessories to North America. The Party is a Bluetooth speaker, able to stream audio from any device with A2DP stereo, such as PCs, cellphones and adapted media players. Non-Bluetooth devices are supported through an auxiliary jack, or else through an RF dongle that plugs into a headphone jack.

The PMK5800 meanwhile is an "all-in-one" car kit, in that it plugs directly into a car's power port, sending output to speakers via FM. A2DP means it accepts music as well as voice. It should ship in the third quarter for $130; the Party will come in the same timeframe for $170.
