Tekkeon's newly-released ezSpeak lets owners completely detach from their cellphone. Inside is a Bluetooth 1.2 receiver, which handles both incoming and outgoing calls, as well as the display of caller ID, battery power and volume level. Perhaps most importantly, the ezSpeak can be used to redial recent numbers, or dial new numbers with voice. The device can sit on a seat or desk or clip to a car's sunvisor. A lithium-polymer battery provides up to 10 hours of talk time or 220 hours (nine days) of standby. Tekkeon is selling the ezSpeak today for $80, which includes the visor clip and a 12V car charger.
