Jabra†today introduced the†Jabra Sport Wireless+ fitness headset. The new wireless headset builds on the success of the Jabra Sport, adding features including a new fit clip, increased battery life and a variety of eargels for the best fit possible while working out. A free, three-month subscription to fitness app†Endomondo Premium is also included in the package.
Headset manufacturer Jabra today announced the†Jabra Motion series†which includes the†Jabra Motion and Jabra Motion UC, Unified Communcation-based headsets aimed at the rapidly growing†Mobile Worker workforce. The iOS- and Android-compatible wireless headset is shipping the second quarter of this year.
Speakerphone manufacturer Jabra today announced the Jabra Speak 510 series. Targeting the mobile worker, the Speak 510+ cuts the cords, using a dongle to enable wireless use with smartphones with up to a 300-foot range. In addition, the device features 15 hours of talk time.
Jabra, maker of audio accessories, has just introduced the Solemate portable speaker. It can connect to a number of sources thanks to its 3.5mm audio input, USB port, or wirelessly through Bluetooth 3.0. The rubber sole hides a 3.5mm cable, which is included.
Jabra has announced two new additions to its portfolio of headsets aimed at active individuals. The wireless Sport and the tethered Sport-Corded let listeners get music or talk during exercise. Both headsets are designed specifically to be both securer and comfortable while biking or running.
Bluetooth headset maker Jabra on Monday began shipping its new Easycall device at AT&T stores. At the same time, the company has released its previously introduced Cruiser2 in-car speakerphone with voice controls. The new EasyCall is meant for first-time Bluetooth headset users and uses a DSP chip to clean the sound.
Jabra used CTIA to unveil an atypically advanced Bluetooth speakerphone. The Freeway is unique in building in a third speaker. Adding an extra channel to the 5W system both improves the loudness and adds bass response for those who want to use it for music.
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.
Jabra today updated its signature Bluetooth headset. The Stone2 keeps its signature twist shape and namesake charger but adds voice control and guidance. On a basic level, the earpiece will read out caller ID or the phone number and either take or end the call by speaking "answer" or "ignore." Many devices can also start a call through speaking the name or number, and Jabra's app platform opens the option of voice-guided e-mail, searches, social networking and text messages.
Jabra has introduced a new Extreme-series Bluetooth headset with the 'For PC' suffix that is certified to work with Skype. It ships with a pre-paired USB adapter that connects the headset to computers for VoIP apps or others that can use wireless audio.

India rejects Apple's refurb request
Apple's request to the Indian government to be allowed to sell refurbished iPhones has been rejected, a move that will hurt the company's efforts to attract budget-oriented consumers. Opposition to the importation of refurbished iPhones is said to have been led by local smartphone makers (and, it should be noted, Samsung), who feared that lower-cost iPhones would undermine the government's own mandates on manufacturing phones in India, and trigger a flood of used electronics into the marketplace, driving prices generally downward. Currently, Apple has just two percent of the smartphone market there, and is also applying to the government for permission to open directly-controlled Apple Stores. That decision is still pending. http://bloom.bg/1rRgi0I
