Bluetooth cellphone accessory that took the "hands-free" out "of "hands-free headset," is now
available exclusively from Verizon, and for a little cheaper than the $150 we originally reported. As you'll no doubt
recall from our original
write-up of the Style-i, this Haier P7
-lookalike is designed for the same purpose
as other Bluetooth headsets -- to let you make calls while your phone is charging or in a bag -- but without the
convenience of, you know, freeing up your hands. Actually, LG almost had us sold on this $130 product until we found
out that you can't daisy-chain two of them together -- how are you supposed to pick up a call if both your phone and
first Style-i are charging simultaneously?
