LG HBM-800 is a headset and speakerphone in one
The LG HBM-800 combines a Bluetooth headset and a Bluetooth speakerphone in one handy device. The Bluetooth headset slots into a dock on the speakerphone, and you can transfer audio from one to the other.
LG seems to be leading the way in combining Bluetooth headsets with other things. The
On its own, the headset is like any other Bluetooth headset. It has dual microphones for echo cancellation and noise suppression, plus it has LG's e-Clip ergonomic earbud on the back. Once you dock the headset into the speakerphone however, the audio automatically transfers to the speakerphone, and you can now use it like you would a Bluetooth speaker. This also works in reverse; when you take the headset out, the audio will transfer to the headset. The speakerphone has a clip on the back so you can easily clip it to your car's visor. This is a great option if you want both a Bluetooth speakerphone and a Bluetooth headset in one compact package.
The headset's talk time is up to 4 hours while the speakerphone/cradle talk time is up to 7 hours. No word on price or availability.
