With the upcoming release of the Nokia 6310
(hopefully being within the next few months), the company has announced three
new Bluetooth products to complement the phone as probable accessories.
With both Ericsson and Motorola having already announced and release
products, Nokia have taken time in releasing any products based on the new
standard probably because Bluetooth is still very new.
At the same time, the company is confident that it knows most of its
customers are always willing to wait around irrespective of its competition :)
Weighing a mere 32 grams and
up to 4 hours of talk time, the wireless headset provides the user with freedom
to move around and removing the trouble of wires tangling causing possible
frustration. The headset can be
used up to 10 metres away from the actual phone with line of sight not being an
issue, and also being able to retain excellent audio quality.
With a standby of up to 100 hours, recharging the headset will only
requires a user to plug it up to your Nokia phone charger.
Wireless Car Kit (CARK112)
Similar to that of the
standard Nokia car kits, this one allows the user to take calls in the car even
when the Bluetooth-enabled phone is stashed away in the briefcase or handbag –
whilst retaining a high level of audio quality.
Forget about needing to attach those ugly-looking cradles and leave a
mark on the dash! A small remote
control, supplied with the wireless car kit, can be placed in a convenient
location where taking a call will only require simple interaction.
The DTL-4, an update to the DTL-1 card for the Nokia 6210, comes with Bluetooth
1.1 compliance and is ready to interact with devices such as the Nokia 6310 and
upcoming 7650 multimedia phone. With
the similar 10 metre range limit between both Bluetooth-enable devices, it
provides computing devices – whether it is a laptop/notebook or PDA – with
access to data whether it be standard dial-up, HSCSD or GPRS.
Alternatively, the card gives the user the option of being able to
synchronise information – such as calendar and contacts – between the phone
Expect these exciting
Bluetooth devices to be in the market by early 2002 – when the Nokia 6310 make
it into stores first (well, there’s not much point for these when Nokia does
not have a phone out with built-in Bluetooth yet :)
