Nokia J Headset
Nokia, the Finnish technology behemoth that was one of the first
global mobile phone leaders, calls this new Bluetooth headset its most sophisticated
yet. Light and ergonomic, with an über-sleek stainless steel design that champions
its Scandinavian roots, the J is billed as “Always Ready” — just remove the
earpiece from its holder and you’re ready to talk. The headset does the rest,
powering on, connecting and answering calls. Put the earpiece back in the holder
and the headset will end the call, disconnect and power off. A winner of numerous
design awards, it boasts up to five hours of talk time and up to three months
of standby time. $99.99. www.amazon.com/nokia-j-bluetooth-headset-silver/dp/B004XIB91O
