Jawbone Icon brings battery meter to BlackBerrys

Now BlackBerry owners will have the Jawbone Icon battery meter as well.

One of the benefits of the Aliph Jawbone Icon is that if you pair it with an iPhone you can see the headset battery meter next to the iPhone's. Now BlackBerry owners have the icon as well. Just pair and connect the Jawbone Icon to your BlackBerry and you'll see the Icon's battery meter. To get this new functionality, you'll have to get it from Jawbone's MyTalk Web site under the "Mobile Apps" tab.

The Jawbone Icon comes in six designs, and you can customize it with a variety of "apps" and sound profiles, which is unique for Bluetooth headsets. We rate the Icon favorably and it costs about $99.99, though you can get it for cheaper if you shop around.
