Sony Ericsson Adds Bluetooth Speakerphone

Sony Ericsson earlier this week announced a new hands-free Bluetooth-enabled car speakerphone for use with mobile handsets. The new Bluetooth Car Speakerphone HCB-100 is expected to be available in the second quarter of this year.

The HCB-100, said Sony Ericsson, attaches to the car visor via a clip and reportedly has distinguishable buttons for handling calls without losing focus on the road. The speakerphone is colored silver/black and comes with a cigarette lighter adapter, standard charger and user’s guide.

Other features of the stylish HCB-100 include up to 20 hours of talk time, 600 hours of standby time, a color id for facilitating five different handset connections inside and outside of the car, digital noise reduction technologies to help provide more easily heard calls and use of Bluetooth 1.2 standards.
