Bluetooth Retro Handset!

A technological review website, called thinkgeek.com has come out with a very innovative Bluetooth handset for your cell phone. And it looks just like the PSTN Handsets that were used in the early days of the telephone itself!

No more tangled up phone cord. Now people will think you're really crazy talking into an old-time handset connected to... nothing. The price, however, is on the higher side, with a $35 (BDT 2450) price tag!

Features include:
* Battery charges via USB connection
* Make and receive calls
* Approximately 30 ft range
* Works with Bluetooth V1.0, 1.1, 1.2
* Blue LED indicates function mode
* Comes with: Handset, USB cable, Instructions
* Please note: cell phone not included


Wireless Speaker System

In the future, homes will have a wireless network for all products. To bridge the technology gap until then, the 'Plug and Play' wireless speaker system makes music from all sources available, regardless if it is stored on cell phones, PCs or MP3 players. The transparent speakers deliver high sound quality and blend into most interiors. Audio files are transmitted using a system of speakers with Bluetooth receiver, and a Bluetooth sender.

The plugs dock into the side of the speaker for charging, and in the speaker has a transparent LCD-display in the glass, providing information about song title, equalizer, etc.
