Bluetooth gadgets often aren’t much to look at. So it’s nice to see someone trying to inject these devices with a bit of style.
Jabra, the Bluetooth buffs leading the ‘Wireless Earvolution’, have announced that their Stone and Street devices will now be available in white. With the iPhone 4 setting a trend for what could well become a tech whitewash, they’re set to be one of many manufacturers deciding that – for now, at least – white is the new black.
The Stone will give you 8 hours of talk time and up to 12 days on standby. Noise Blackout Extreme technology promises to make your conversations that little bit clearer, and a portable charging unit should keep the most forgetful of you out of trouble. But, if you’re after something a little more flamboyant, the Street plays music from your mobile or mp3 as well as letting you chat – all without getting your phone out of your pocket, that it. With an operating range of up to 33 feet, it’ll give you the same 8 hours of talk time as the Stone, and a very reasonable 7 hours of music playback.
The Jabra Stone will set you back £99.99, while the Street comes at a slightly more affordable £49.99. Both will be available from July.
