Nokia headsets play a new tune
Phone maker's accessories look more like they're made for media players.
As mobile phones continue their march in to the, their accessories increasingly resemble those previously reserved for media players. Just yesterday we saw a pair of designed for both music and phone reception, complete with touch-sensitive controls.
Now Nokia, which has been among the more aggressive phone makers to market music equipment for its handsets, has come up with a couple of new headsets that will let you listen to MP3s until a call comes in, then automatically shut them off so you can talk. Even better, it'll pick up where the song left off when you were so rudely interrupted.
Nokia's WH-600 and WH-700 are headphone cans and in-ear models, respectively, with in-line volume controls. Unfortunately, both models are wired--which, in today's mobile headset market, seems downright primitive.
