Nokia today announced its first Bluetooth speakerphone, the Nokia Speakerphone HF-300. Here is more info:
"Having a conversation in and out of the car is about as simple as talking to yourself, thanks to Nokia's first speakerphone, the stylish Nokia Speakerphone HF-300. This detachable Bluetooth speakerphone hosts a powerful speaker and microphone. Its audio quality is enhanced even more with Digital Signal Processing (DSP), canceling out excess noises and echoes. No need to concern yourself with the power button - this clever device knows when to turn off (auto power off) after you stop talking.
"We are committed to providing convenient communications in the car - and out of it too. The beauty of the Nokia Speakerphone HF-300 is in its mobility, it goes where you go, when you want to talk. We are excited to have the speakerphone as part of our expanding enhancements portfolio to meet the needs of our consumers," said Wolfgang G?rtner, senior category manager, Nokia Automotive.
The Nokia Speakerphone HF-300 offers a number of elements that enable easy communications, in and out of the car. It is operated with battery power, so you're not confined to using it with a power outlet. The speakerphone comes with a sunvisor clip, so you can easily position it for use in the car. You can talk freely too - the speakerphone has illuminated keys for easy use, without all the fuss of blinking lights. For those extended conversations, take this lightweight (80g) speakerphone outside, into your home or office, and mount it to a surface with its rubber feet. You can enjoy up to 20 hours of talk time!
The speakerphone will automatically turn off after five minutes after the connection to the mobile device has been severed. When the battery runs low, the LED battery indicator will light up to alert you.
Available globally, the Nokia Speakerphone HF-300 is compatible with a wide range of Nokia mobile devices supporting Bluetooth Specification 1.1 and higher and Handfree Profile 1.0 and higher. It is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2007 and will cost an estimated EUR90, excluding taxes.
