Parrot has introduced its new Parrot MINIKIT, a hands-free mobile speakerphone that features voice recognition and audio quality that boasts crystal clear, voice-activated phoning in the car, at home or in the office.
The company says that the MINIKIT is the only speakerphone in its category that allows users to set up their phone books with voice tags for the convenience and added control of true hands-free voice dialing, which is a good thing when you need to keep your eyes on the road.
The unit has a built-in two-watt high-fidelity speaker and a built-in omni-directional microphone supported by the latest DSP-2 signal processing technology.
Upgradeable software ensures compatibility with future cell phones. It will pair with up to five phones, each with 150 voice tags, and recognizes multiple languages. Once paired, it will connect automatically with the user’s cell phone and will work with virtually all Bluetooth-enabled cell phones on the market.
- Features 10 hours of talktime; 1 week of standby
- Includes last-number redial
- Comes with 12V and 120V charging units
- 4.3 x 2.5 x 1.2 inches; weighs 3.5 ounces
