Sony Ericsson PV740

Sony Ericsson's multi-part announcements today round out with the introduction of three Bluetooth headsets. The PV740, PV720, and PV715 all have the best battery life of a headset from the company with a claimed 11-hour talk time and 800 hours of standby. All three automatically pair up with many devices and auto-adjust volume to compensate for loud rooms. The PV740 leads the range with a metal, professional-looking shell, a built-in status display, and a cradle charger.

The other two headsets cater primarily to home users, according to Sony Ericsson. The PV720 serves the style-conscious with three different faceplates and a black necklace to wear the headset outside of normal use, while the PV715 offers just the basics in a more conventional plastic body.

The company plans a staggered launch for the headsets that sees the PV720 launch first, with a worldwide debut in the summer; the PV715 and PV740 follow last with same-scale introductions in the fall. Prices haven't been announced and are likely to vary by country.

    Not bad...

    I'm actually considering purchasing one of these to replace my Apple Bluetooth Headset for the iPhone. I get about one hour of talk time before that thing craps out, unacceptable. If this thing actually lives up to the promised talk time, I might just have to ditch my Apple one.
