Motorola H12 headset
Motorola today announced a new Bluetooth 2.0 headset, the H12. The headset is the first from Motorola to use CrystalTalk technology, previously limited to the company's cellphones; in its headset incarnation, the technology relies on twin microphones to separate voice from wind and other background noise. To improve comfort, the H12 comes with an ear hook and three different cushion sizes.
Talk-time is rated at 5.5 hours, with a battery standby capacity of just over eight days. Accessories include a shirt clip, desktop charger and charger case. While Motorola has not cited any specific sales plans, AT&T has stated that it should already have the H12 available, at a cost of $100 after a mail-in rebate.
