Motorola has continued its unofficial announcements today with the unveiling of the MOTOROKR T505. Much like the T305 and T605, the palm-sized speakerphone mounts in a car and provides hands-free calling with most Bluetooth phones. New to the T-series are the extra music features, Motorola notes. Music phones and some portable media players can beam their music through the T505, which adapts the signal to true stereo sound in either wired speakers or across FM to the car's audio system. Drivers also have quick access to a play/pause button to stop music before making an outbound call.
The speakerphone also builds in text-to-speech recognition and will verbally announce caller ID as well as ideal FM settings when the auto-scan system finds a clear channel to transmit audio. Battery life is estimated at 20 hours for the lithium-ion battery. Similar to the iDEN phones revealed at the same time, Motorola has shied away from providing release details, though the accessory will be sold independently of any one carrier. [via Gizmodo]
