Parrot Minikit+, a low-profile chatterbox (review)

Parrot's latest visor-mount speakerphone places a heavy emphasis on voice actions and spoken menus.

With its low-profile design, the Parrot Minikit+ doesn't command a lot of the driver's attention. That's a good thing.

It even knows to turn itself on when you enter the car thanks to its vibration sensor and automatic power feature. Beyond a basic setup and the occasional charging, you'll likely forget that this slim Bluetooth speakerphone is suspended from your car's sun visor...waiting.

That is until a call comes in and the Parrot Minikit+ springs to life and starts talking to you with its odd, robotic British accent. You'll then be able to take advantage of the Magic Words feature to answer or reject a call without lifting a finger. And when it's time for you to initiate a call, you can do that too with little more than the tap of a button and the speaking of a name.

Check out the full review of the Parrot Minikit+ for even more details.
