PRLog - March 7, 2011 - Singapore, 7 March 2011 – Jabra, a world leader in innovative headset solutions, is set to launch the Jabra STONE2 in Singapore at the IT Show 2011. This latest Bluetooth standout, and sequel to the original distinctive Jabra Stone, won the International CES Best of Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award, gaining top score in the Wireless Handsets Accessories category for its innovative engineering and unique design.
With a unique form factor unmatched by any other headset in the worldwide market, Jabra STONE2 makes its Singapore debut at the IT Show 2011 on 10 - 13 March, Suntec Singapore when it will retail for S$198 exclusively at Booth 6731 (Level 6) and Booth 8236 (Level 4). Post-IT Show, Jabra STONE2 will be available at Challenger, EpiCentre, Nubox stores and other authorized Jabra resellers for S$198 (RRP).
Building on the revolutionary design and shape of the successful Stone – a curved, flexible headset that comes together with its round, portable charger and turns into a fascinating ‘stone’ that fits into the palm of your hand – the Jabra STONE2 sports a new leather finish and packs in new advanced features that bring new levels of usability to Bluetooth headsets. Jonathan Tang, Jabra’s regional managing director said, “With the first Jabra Stone, we set out to create a headset so different and unique in look and design that it would appeal to all types of users. The STONE2 takes it a step further with an innovative Voice System, multimedia capabilities and optimization with a wide variety of voice enabled applications.”
Voice Control “Call Pizza”
Taking the concept of hands-free communication to a new level, Jabra Stone2 features an innovative all-new Voice-Control System that allows users to make outgoing calls and answer / reject incoming calls by simply saying so. All you have to say, “Call Taxi”, “Answer”, “Ignore”.
Voice Guidance tells you Caller’s Name
With Voice Guidance feature, users can hear the name of the incoming caller being said through the headset, for e.g “Mum Cell” or David Tan Work”, exactly how you have the caller programmed into your phone. If the caller’s number isn’t saved to your phone, or if your phone does not support PBAP (phonebook access profile), then the voice reads out the phone number.
Voice Guidance also provides audio alerts like “Connected”
Get Your Messages Read Out to You
Yet another new feature of Stone2 is its support for Jabra’s third-party apps at the Jabra World of Apps portal. Users have a choice of top worldwide apps that have been rigorously tested to work with Jabra’s hands-free devices. Find the best apps that suit your lifestyle needs, including voice-enabled music and entertainment apps and voice-to text apps to:
• Read email messages
• Update status on social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook)
• Notify users of missed calls etc
Choose the app that fits your needs (and not let the app choose you), mobile software and headset-friendly apps at the portal include Vlingo, Voice on the Go, Voice Assist, Dial2Do, slydial Voice Messaging, mVoice Productivity and many others.
