BARCELONA, Spain, February 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- Exclusive showcase of next generation Jabra STONE - the Jabra STONE2, the all-new Jabra FREEWAY in-car speakerphone and VoIP-optimised devices
Jabra, the world leader in innovative hands-free solutions, will reveal its all-new Bluetooth(R) range at this year's Mobile World Congress. For the first time, Jabra will publicly showcase the next generation Jabra STONE2 Bluetooth headset, with its innovative design and advanced functionality, plus the all-new Jabra FREEWAY, which is set to revolutionise the speakerphone market. Also on show is Jabra's exciting new portfolio of plug-and-play products optimised for easy hands-free VoIP communication.
The Jabra STONE2 brings a whole new level of usability to Bluetooth headsets, combining features galore with unprecedented style to be the perfect companion for people on the go. Using the same revolutionary design as the hugely successful Jabra STONE, the next generation Jabra STONE2 features a new voice concept that allows for truly hands-free communication, boasting a voice system that cleverly tells users who is calling and allows them to simply say "answer" to take the call or "ignore" to reject it. Voice Guidance makes set-up a breeze and battery status is also announced. Four "comfort-tested" ear-gels ensure a comfortable fit all day long for any user, while the wireless portable charger means users can power-up whenever they need to.
The Jabra FREEWAY is an industry first in the in-car speakerphone market. This all new speakerphone, launching across EMEA and APAC *, features not one or two, but three speakers combined with Virtual Surround Sound, taking audio quality steps ahead of the competition. The dual microphone system reduces background noise to make conversations clearer than ever before and voice control functionality means calls can be answered or rejected easily for full concentration on the road. The Jabra FREEWAY also boasts a built-in Motion Sensor which automatically turns the in-car speakerphone on or off when the car door is open or closed, for ultimate ease of use.
Also on show at Mobile World Congress will be new Jabra VoIP-optimised headsets. Two new plug-and-play devices join the Jabra EXTREME - FOR PC, providing a full range of multi-use headsets for mobile calls and VoIP calls through laptops, mobile devices, tablets and PCs. The Jabra EASYGO - FOR PC uses a pre-paired USB adaptor that will automatically connect to a PC for seamless internet and mobile calling. The corded Jabra CHILL - FOR PC headset is ideal for music lovers, coming fully equipped with a high-quality microphone for mobile and VoIP calls, with a music control function for tunes on the move.
