New additions to Jabra's Bluetooth portfolio
Jabra has revealed several new additions to its Bluetooth connectivity range. The new CRUISER2 is a hands-free combined mic/speaker for making and receiving calls on the go in a car. Also added to its range are two new Skype-certified speakerphones, the EXTREME for PC and the SPEAK410 for PC.
The CRUISER2 uses Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and incorporates dual-microphones for noise cancelling. It is also able to stream audio to a car radio from the connected device via an FM transmitter. Talktime is approximately 14hrs or 13 days of stand-by. Its marquee feature is the ability to announce incoming callers by the name that a user programs into the address book.
The Skype-certified the Jabra EXTREME and SPEAK410 are aimed at PC users, but the EXTREME also offers additional versatility in that it can also be paired with a users mobile phone simultaneously. It also features noise cancellation technology courtesy of dual-microphones. The SPEAK410 is a USB-powered speaker phone that is also capable of music playback making it suitable for notebook users also looking for better audio.
No pricing or availability details are currently available for the CRUISER2 in the US. However, the Jabra EXTREME is available now for $100 and the SPEAK410 is due in Q2 with pricing to be announced at that time.
