Bluetooth headsets. Love them or hate them, they serve a purpose, and Motorola is set to release the H17txt with added functionality to keep businessmen’s ears covered forever. The device utilizes MotoSpeak text-to-speech technology, which reads your text messages to you when your phone receives them, even the acronyms like “wtf.”

That software will be available for BlackBerry and Android phones. The headset also has CrystalTalk noise-canceling technology, Bluetooth 2.1 compatibility, and five hours of talk time/seven hours standby.

Pricing is currently unknown, but the device should be on sale from Verizon today.
