iRiver intros BT headset
South Korea-based iRiver has broken from tradition by announcing the upcoming release of its first Bluetooth headset, the A100. iRiver is known for making portable multimedia players to date, such as the SPINN and, more recently, the GPS-enabled NV Classic. Little is known about the device, though its specs are not ground-breaking.
Bluetooth Profile 2.0 is supported and its range is set at 33 feet. iRiver plans to launch the A100 in China, at least initially, which has some 300 million cellphone users. Neither pricing nor a release date have yet been announced. [via DAPReview]
