Griffin is launching the SmartTalk Solar, a hands-free speakerphone for the car that draws its energy from that orange glowing thing in the sky. A transparent sled with suction cups sticks it to your windshield, connecting to any Bluetooth-enabled cellphone you have on your person. Calls are answered at the push of a button and it'll also act as a microphone for your voice dialing or Siri-based shenanigans. If you're planning a intra-state road-trip, you'll be able to access the company's DriveSafe app, which offers up information about local distracted driving laws to ensure you don't get pulled over by a state trooper. It's available for $70 from today and we've got a beauty shot of the device out of its natural environment after the break.
Griffin Launches SmartTalk Solar, the Solar-Charged Handsfree Speakerphone for Smartphones
Nashville, TN – April 26, 2012 – Griffin Technology, one of the world's foremost creators of technological innovations for everyday life, is excited to announce the latest edition to their lineup of DriveSafe products: SmartTalk Solar, a handsfree solar-charged speakerphone for smartphones.
"Staying focused while driving is harder than ever with all the distractions that can come from smartphones," said Mark Rowan, President of Griffin Technology. "Griffin's DriveSafe products and new SmartTalk Solar make it easy to stay connected on the road while maintaining safe driving habits."
Compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled phones, SmartTalk Solar's motion-sensing Auto Connect links to paired smartphones as soon as you enter the car. The multipoint pairing feature conveniently allows connection of two different phones simultaneously.
Intuitive and easy to use, SmartTalk Solar mounts to the windshield with the solar panel facing the glass, keeping the internal battery charged for extended talk time. Answer and place calls using a single large button, or activate the smartphone's voice command features to keep your hands on the wheel when making or receiving calls.
