Jabra’s STONE2 Bluetooth headset 'talks to you'

Jabra has launched its STONE2 Bluetooth headset in India which is designed to listen to your instructions when you speak function-related words like 'call mom' or 'answer' or 'ignore.' It also speaks the names of your contacts whenever they're calling you or to simply read out an unsaved number in digits. It comes with a wireless portable charger, guarantees a talk-time of 10 hours and will also automatically ask you to charge it saying "low battery". Users can also download voice-enabled applications from Jabra's app portal that will let you send/read text messages or emails and update your status on various social networks though your Bluetooth headset (by giving voice commands). Now all that stands between you and this Bluetooth headset are Rs 7,999, which, of course, are worth spending considering all that reputation it has earned lately at the CES Innovation Awards (won the Best Wireless Handset Accessory Award). It will be available in two colors - Black (with leather finish or discrete finish as per user preference) and White (gloss finish). Jump the break to check out how it looks when removed from the wireless portable charger.

Jabra recommends Bluetooth headsets in lieu of brain tumors

Following the World Health Organization’s revelation last week that cell phones are possibly carcinogenic to humans based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer associated with wireless phone use, Jabra has issued an easy fix: instead of putting a cell phone to your ear and possibly getting a brain tumor, use one of its Bluetooth headsets. Jabra says its headsets emit 800 times less radiation than cell phones just 0.0025 watts max output compared to 2 watts max from cell phones. In a Jabra-sponsored survey, 61% said cell phone radiation only concerned them “a little bit” or “to some extent” and 25% said they were not at all concerned. But when informed that using a Bluetooth headset has been scientifically proven to drastically reduce exposure to radiation, more than half of the respondents said they would use a hands-free device. Hit the break for Jabra’s press release.
