CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW: CNET editors cover the Next Big Thing
Truly hands-free with the Jabra BT800
January 6, 2005; 1:55 p.m.
The product: While Bluetooth headsets are great for hands-free talking, you still have to look at your phone to see your caller ID. That means if you want to screen your calls, you shouldn't stray too far from your handset. But at CES, Jabra introduced an answer to this problem with its BT800 headset. Sporting a small LCD screen, the BT800 will display caller ID information and allow you to scroll through your Recent Calls menu. Small and relatively stylish, the BT800 also features a vibrate mode and noise canceling.
