We all know that talking on your phone while driving is a definite no-no, and unless you have a hands-free kit with you, doing so will only endanger your life as well as that of others on the road. Why take the risk when you can always do your part in being a law-abiding citizen (and treasuring your life as well as that of others) with the BlueAnt S3 Speakerphone? This latest release from BlueAnt Wireless comes in the form of a visor-mounted car speakerphone which will draw upon the company’s extensive experience with voice-control features, such as voice answer/ignore, caller name announce and text-message readout, all without breaking the bank – sweet words in these economically challenging times, eh?
The S3 will definitely not tarnish BlueAnt’s heritage of delivering products with superior voice quality, outstanding wind, road and background noise reduction and superior call clarity. To make matters more enticing, the new BlueAnt S3 will come with a useful auto reconnection function that makes sure the device is more than ready to handle the user’s voice commands without sacrificing battery life. It does so by reconnecting the speakerphone to the driver’s phone automatically courtesy of built-in vibration sensor.
The S3 was specifically designed for drivers who want a fully featured, value-priced speakerphone that boasts simple voice prompts, where it will be able to utilize text-to-speech technology which reads out text messages via a free, downloadable application. Not only that, the S3 is capable of announcing the caller’s name from a list of up to 2,000 mobile phone contacts whenever the phone rings.
A bunch of other standard features on the BlueAnt S3 Speakerphone will comprise of true multipoint technology for connecting and conducting calls on two mobile phones simultaneously and A2DP for audio streaming of music, podcasts and turn-by-turn directions from a GPS navigation application. It offers up to to 20 hours of talk time; and 600 hours on standby, where $79.99 will net you the S3 in the first quarter of the year alongside a two-year replacement warranty. What you see above is the S3 Compact just for reference’s sake.
