I don’t normally post electronics to SafeMama™ but this one I decided to review because one of my biggest pet peeves of drivers is people who talk on their phones and drive at the same time… not that I don’t expect anyone to ever do it, it’s just that so many people are BAD at it. My husband is guilty of it and I ream him about it often. With kids in the car it’s just plain dangerous (in fact SafeMama recommends not talking on the phone at all while you’re driving) and now that we’re all shuffling the kids to school and activities (and the Pediatrician) we’re bound to need the phone enroute to somewhere. BlackBerry sent us their new Visor Mount Speakerphone to test out. I handed it over to my husband who is the resident BlackBerry user in this house and he went to work checking it out.
The device consists of the Visor Mounted speaker which is pretty slick looking, as most BlackBerry products are, and it slips nicely on to most standard visors with a wire clip. Once you set up your BlueTooth on your phone (it’ll work with any BlueTooth enabled phone) you can enjoy hands free conversations without having to hold on to your phone. The calls come in clear and you don’t need to shout to be heard. The people we called to test it out weren’t aware of our hands free device… it’s was mostly undetectable.
You can answer calls with one touch and receive verbal caller IDs. The Visor Mount Speakerphone also can stream music from your BlackBerry over the car stereo! Sweet! Get your own at ShopBlackBerry.com.
