Nokia Announces Bluetooth Speakerphone

Nokia’s latest innovative accessory is their new Bluetooth speaker phone that can be used in your car. The HF-300 boasts a powerful speaker and microphone and its audio quality is enhanced with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) that cancels out excess noises and echoes. The device also has an auto power off feature. That means it turns itself 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 Gärtner, senior category manager, Nokia Automotive.

The device runs on battery power so it's totally mobile and apparently offers up to 20 hours of talk time. When the battery runs low, the LED indicator provides an alert. There are also simple keys that are illuminated for taking and ending calls. The HF-300 weighs 80g. It's equipped with a sunvisor clip for easy positioning of the device in your car and has rubberized pegs at the bottom so it can easily stay firm on your desk. The speakerphone will automatically turn off after five minutes after the connection to the mobile device has been severed.

The 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 globally in the third quarter of 2007 and will cost an estimated Rs. 4960, excluding taxes.
