Jabra outs dual-mic Bluetooth speakerphone

Jabra has announced the release of a new Bluetooth 2.1 speakerphone for use in cars, with its Cruiser. The new speakerphone is one of the first to use dual microphones to eliminate background noise and cancel out echos. The device is also capable of reading out contact names as they call in, or phone numbers if they aren't saved in the address book. This voice guides users through the pairing process, announces battery and connection status, and helps during the initial pairing and any subsequent links.

The Cruiser will also play back MP3 audio stored on the paired handset, or can stream it to a nearby FM radio thanks to its built-in FM transmitter. Music transitions through to calls and will gradually fade out to be replaced with the ringer. There is an auto-pairing function, and up to two Bluetooth devices can be paired simultaneously.

Jabra says the Cruiser's battery life can last up to 10 hours of talk time or up to 13 days of standby.

No US pricing or shipping dates have yet been announced, though they are expected to be close to the European equivalent of $158. [via Mobiwoo]
