Conference phone gets help from the cell

Bluetooth system synchs up to 6,000 contacts.

If we understand it correctly, this speakerphone is designed for the person who makes a lot of conference calls but can never remember the phone numbers.

The Bluetooth system can wirelessly synch up with 6,000 cell phone contacts, receiving signals from up to 30 feet away. (Why you'd be that far away is beyond us, however.) It also runs on rechargeable batteries, so you can just pick it up and carry it to the next interminable meeting .

Other than that, it seems to be a pretty standard conference phone that makes the usual claims of super-clear conversations (right). But it still might be worth considering to avoid the humiliation of scheduling an important meeting and then forgetting the numbers you're supposed to call.
