Parrot MK6100 amp/display

Bluetooth specialist Parrot has announced the MK6100, a combination display and amplifier for cars meant as much for music as it is for cellphones. While it can be used to dial and receive calls without taking a phone out of its pocket, it also supports A2DP audio, which is pumped through a 30W amplifier into a car's speakers. Similarly, the wireless remote features special music controls that communicate through the AVRCP standard. This means that the 6100 can take advantage of any audio source, so long as it has Bluetooth output. The display additionally has a text-to-speech function, which can read contacts aloud while users are driving. The 6100 should be on sale in North America in the second quarter of this year.
