It’s been only 24 hours since we told you about Jabra’s Freeway speakerphone, but the race for the most powerful car speakerphone is heating up thanks to the folks at Supertooth. To be honest, their press release went out a few days ago, we’ve just been a bit remiss to post on the gadget since car speakerphones don’t exactly get us all hot and bothered.
Nonetheless, the Supertooth HD features two speakers with a 5 watt audio output and a 5.4 watt amplifier, allowing the company to lay claim to what possibly might be the most powerful and advanced speakerphone on the market. While that claim is debatable, and for the most part moot, it does include a handsfree experience, allowing drivers to use their voice to answer incoming calls, select pre-dialed phone numbers, check battery level or retrieve voicemail. Much like the Jabra Freeway it will also let you update your Facebook, Twitter, e-mail and SMS messages all via voice, as well as read incoming SMS and e-mail messages on Android and Blackberry phones via an accompanying application.
You can expect the Supertooth HD to go on sale this April for $129.
Paris – March 21, 2011 – SuperTooth, creator of the concept of a Bluetooth speakerphone that could be clipped onto a car’s sun visor, is launching the SuperTooth HD this year – the most advanced Bluetooth speakerphone on the market, with three times more power than other models and the ability to communicate on social networks all via voice commands.
“Using wireless devices in the car has been identified as the leading source of driver’s not paying attention on the road, with cell phone use increasing the likelihood of crashes fourfold,” said Yves Le Reun, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “The SuperTooth HD gives consumers a hands-free solution to talk and text on their phones so they can abide by the law and focus on driving.”
Boasting Twin Speaker V Array Technology, the SuperTooth HD features two speakers with a 5 watt audio output and a 5.4 watt amplifier, making it three times more powerful than any other speakerphone. The built-in dual microphones pick up voices more clearly. Together, these advanced audio features produce unrivaled audio quality in both emission and reception.
State-of-the-art voice commands are designed to provide a hands-free solution for phone use to make the driving experience safer. Using just voice commands, drivers can answer incoming calls, select pre-dialed phone numbers, check battery level or retrieve voicemail. The SuperTooth Handsfree Assistant feature allows drivers to compose and send Facebook, Twitter, e-mail and SMS messages all via voice. The SuperTooth HD can also read incoming SMS and e-mail messages on Android and Blackberry phones via the specific application. The SuperTooth Handsfree Assistant is powered by Dial2Do.
The SuperTooth HD is compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled phones, including iPhones, Blackberrys and other smartphones with an Android OS or Windows Mobile operating system.
No installation is required – just clip the SuperTooth HD onto a sun visor, pair it with the phone and enjoy comfortable and safe phone calls while driving. A USB cable and in-car charger is also included.
The SuperTooth HD will be available in April 2011 for MSRP $129 at department, specialty and mobile phone stores nationwide.
