LG VX8610's internal Bluetooth headset gets its own FCC love

Chris Ziegler

Its host phone got signed off a few weeks ago, but it turns out that the Bluetooth headset that's stowed away inside Verizon's upcoming VX8610 needs its own, independent FCC scrutiny. Makes sense, we suppose, seeing how it's a full fledged RF device in its own right. It's an exciting concept, no question, but you have to wonder what kind of battery life is going to get sucked out of the mothership when the headset needs charging -- if the headset can actually charge without the phone being plugged into the wall. Guess we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out.
