Motorola H5 MiniBlue

Motorola H5 MiniBlue

Since the Consumer Electronics Show is taking place in Las Vegas this week, the deluge of new gadgets continues. This tiny hands-free Bluetooth headset has a fairly revolutionary feature that routes voices through your ear canal, reducing outside noise and letting you chat it up in a noisy bar. The Motorola H5 MiniBlue ($TBA; expected first half of 2006) has both an in-ear microphone and speaker, up to 7.5 hours of talk time, works up to 30 feet away from your phone, and is compatible with any brand of Bluetooth-enabled phone — not just Motos.
