Axes Voiis Mini

Axes today launched its unique hybrid Voiis Mini handheld. The pocketable device relies exclusively on Bluetooth to handle both calling, data, and music by contacting a nearby PC. A built-in microphone and speaker let it operate as an AIM, Skype, or Windows Live phone, while the network link also serves up instant messaging through Microsoft's networks. Streaming music from iTunes and Windows Media Player is also possible and is backed by a headphone jack for private listening.

Bluetooth's normally short range is no longer an issue, the company says: a USB antenna lets the new Voiis operate as far as 330 feet away for up to six hours of continuous calling on a single battery charge.

Axes is committed to shipping the phone on July 13th in its native Japan. Pricing is officially flexible on the street but is estimated to sell for about $130. Exports are possible but so far unannounced. [via Impress]
