Jawbone ERA is the world's first Bluetooth headset to pack a built-in accelerometer
The Jawbone ERA is the latest from Aliph and sports the unique inclusion of an accelerometer on top of the other new fancy features like its “multi-processor architecture” and “Motion-X” technology. Specifically, the accelerometer is used for a wide array of functionality – like double tap (“taptap”) anywhere on the headset to pick up/end a call and “shakeshake” it to place it into pairing mode. Although it may sound like novel features, it's still in the early stages and Aliph expects it to be refined further down the road for additional functionality.
Pricing is set for $129.99 and will be available in four colors starting January 23rd through a handful of retail partners like Apple and Best Buy.
