CeBit: Motorola announces hands free Bluetooth device

Mar 18 2004 - 02:45 PM ET | Bluetooth, Motorola
Motorola has announced a device for your car that uses both your stereo and your phone to allow hands-free calls. That may sound pretty complicated, but it may mean we'll see more phones with Bluetooth. Here's a quick description from Motorola: bq. "The latest Motorola in-vehicle system will automatically connect securely to a driverís Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, whether the conversation was initiated before or after starting the vehicle, all without wires or connections." Because it ties in with your car stereo, the system needs to be professionally installed. Pricing was not announced. We'll post more info once the system starts shipping later this year.
