Parrot Minikit hands-free mobile speakerphone


Parrot has a new device on the market for hands-free calling wherever you are (not just in the car) – the Minikit hands-free mobile speakerphone.

The Minikit is small – the size of a wallet – and will work with virtually all Bluetooth-enabled mobile handsets on the market. It’s audio quality comes from a built-in two-watt high-fidelity speaker and a built-in omni-directional microphone supported by the latest DSP-2 signal processing technology. It’s also the only speakerphone in its category with advanced voice recognition technology, so you can set up your phone book with voice tags for true hands-free voice dialling – important when driving.

It also features last-number redial and for privacy, you can switch a call from the speakerphone to a mobile phone by pressing the green ‘call’ button – or the reverse to transfer a call back to speakerphone. The Minikit features 10 hours of talk time, more than one week of standby time and will fully recharge in only three hours.  It also comes with both a 12V and 120V charging unit.

Available from late October, it should retail for around £60.
