CES 2006: Parrot's car stereo with Bluetooth
Hybrid gadgets are all the rage – so Parrot’s Rhythm n’ Blue, the world’s first car stereo with hands-free calling for Bluetooth-enabled phones should come as no surprise.
The Rhythm n’ Blue is a top-end AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo receiver with a powerful a powerful 4 x 45 watt internal amplifier that works in conjunction with most Bluetooth mobile phones on the market, allowing the driver to make calls, take calls and access a mobile address book hands-free via Parrot’s voice-recognition technology. When a call comes in, a quick glance at your receiver shows Caller ID, your music source is automatically muted and the phone audio is routed through the vehicle’s speakers – all with no hands.
Other features include a detachable faceplate for security, an integrated telephone keypad and address book and synchronisation with a mobile to access contact details.
The Rhythm n’ Blue made its debut at this year’s CES. No price or date for the UK market is currently available.
