Motorola Introduces Second Generation Bluetooth Wireless Headset

Yesterday Motorola introduced its second generation Bluetooth Wireless Headset. The new product will have many improvements in performance and interoperability, offering longer talk and standby time and seamless communication with an increased number of compatible devices. The headset now stores pairing information for and can securely interact wirelessly with up to eight different Bluetooth-enabled devices from a variety of manufacturers, including handsets, PDAs and computers within a 10-meter range. After unfolding the microphone boom and placing the headset over the ear, the headset automatically links to the user's compatible Bluetooth product without the user ever touching the device. The headset is smaller than 5 cm in diameter, weighs less than 28 grams and now features an increased talk time of up to 4 hours with up to 70 hours of standby time.
Motorola will also showcase its Bluetooth Car Kit, a winner of a 2002 CES Innovations Award, which combines high-quality audio performance and voice recognition with Bluetooth wireless technology


Cingular Wireless today announced that it has now deployed GSM and GPRS to more than 50 percent of potential subscribers nationwide. Since announcing that it would begin deploying its high-speed wireless data service across its nationwide network late last year, Cingular has engaged in a series of strategic initiatives to expand its reach, creatively add capacity and ready its network for third generation wireless data technology.
Cingular will continue deployment of GSM/GPRS in 2003. Ninety percent of the covered population and all major markets should be complete by the end of next year. The network overlay will be complete in all Cingular markets by mid-2004.
