Sony Ericsson announces HBV-100 Bluetooth VoIP kit


Sony Ericsson has ventured into VoIP territory before with its Bluetooth headsets, but in that case the headset had the slight drawback of only being compatible with Sony's own VAIO BX laptops. Now the company's finally seen fit to give other PC users a break with its latest Bluetooth VoIP kit, although Mac users are, unfortunately, still out of luck. The headset in the kit is Sony Ericsson's existing HBH-PV705 model, available in blue only, and promising the same 12 hours of talk time and 300 hours standby time as before. It gets paired with a USB Bluetooth adapter, which means that you don't have to worry about having a PC or laptop with built-in Bluetooth, although its not clear if you can take advantage of that if you do -- probably not, since there's apparently no software or drivers involved here. Sony Ericsson hasn't announced how much it'll cost just yet, though it should be available before the end of the year.
