SouthWing SH440

Accessory maker SouthWing this afternoon marked the US launch of the SH440 Bluetooth headset with an introduction for AT&T. The hands-free earpiece overcomes the limited interface of most headsets by providing one of the first complete voice prompt systems for the device class. Wearers are not only guided through pairing the phone by voice commands but are given quick access to battery life and other details while the phone is in use. Those on AT&T's network can issue voice commands to cue audio news and weather info or check voicemail without ever reaching for the actual phone, SouthWing says.

Users can also choose from any one of twelve different ringtones, store four favourite numbers for autodialing, and lasts for either 10 hours of continuous use or two complete weeks in standby mode. The device supports any Bluetooth phone with hands-free calling support (including Bluetooth 2.0 devices) and should be available in the US primarily through AT&T, which will sell the SH440 for $50.
