    Jabra has the new model BT headset listed on their website...

    Jabra BT110

    15hrs talk time on 1 AAA battery. No having to keep a charging cradle handy when the power runs low.

    Are these things (BT headsets in general) small enough to stuff in my pocket? I use the retractable Jabra right now and it's great. I can leave it in my pocket all the time. Would I be able to do this with a BT one? If not, there's no reason to spend the money for it.

    On the page linked to above, there is a link to a pdf file with pics of the device in people's ears.

    Looks like it'll fit in a pocket to me...unless you got some tight pockets.

    I just got off the phone with Jabra. One advantage of the new BT 110 headset is that it supports Bluetooth 1.2 over BT 1.1. Unfortunately the new Treo 650 does not support BT 1.2. We will still be able to use the two together, as BT 1.2 is backward compatible, but we wont get the new BT 1.2 features. See my other post for explanation.

    Also I find it interesting how the new Jabra BT110 doesn't seem to point a mic at your mouth. From the picture it looks like it sets completely behind the ear and points to the ground. I wonder how this will work out. Does it have a directional mic pointing at the mouth or is it picking up vibrations of speech off the skull. Very different design than the Jabra BT 250 or 200.

    What is everyones opinion or perference of the Jabra rechargable BT 250 over the new single AAA Jabra BT110. I am on the fence. I hate to have to replace AAA batteries every 15 hours. Although it is only one battery. Also i am sure 15 hours is the best case scenario. Thoughts?

    From other specs I've seen for BT headsets, 15 hours is a LONG time for talk time.
    Grab yourself a good set of rechargable AAA batteries and you're all set.

    I wonder if I had rechargable AAA batteries if the 15 hrs would be a LOT less....

    I own the BT200 and one thing I can say about it's design is if you plan on putting it on it's cradle on your belt (DON'T) If you bed or sit, there is a good change it slides off the base and eventually pops out. I like the size of the new model but I do not like the fact I have to throw away batteries....

    The BT-800, which I saw at CTIA Wireless yesterday, will be out in January.

    It has an LCD screen, custom ringtones, and DSP hardware to reduce external noise.
    There's no place like 127.0.0.1

    I would wait for C-net to review it before I purchase it.

    Pretty clever idea ... except that's one big (and fugly) sucker of a earset. You'll need counterweights on the other ear so you don't tip over.

    can someone enlighten me the exact uses of a LCD screen in a behind the ear (hopefully) headset?

    if it's not behind the ear.. i probably wouldn't want to use it.

    It will tell you who's calling. That way you can leave your phone in your bag. This is a guess.

    Google for it--there is some info 'hidden' on Jabra's site.

    Here is a Link from the press release. It also has a PDF file contained within it that shows all of the stuff coming or just released.

    The LED is for battery level on the 500 and has backlit caller id on the 800.
