Jabra has unveiled their sequel to their popular Jabra STONE headset. The new Jabra STONE2 sports a similar form-factor but improves on the original with an impressive feature set. The STONE2 headset will let you send text messages, emails, make calls, and update your Facebook page – all just by using your voice. Besides “bossing” it around with commands, it will also “talk” to users to notify them of missed calls, read email messages to them, update them on Facebook and Twitter status updates, listen to music stations, get traffic reports,and more. Jabra STONE is set to retail for $129.99 an will be sold exclusively by AT&T.
- Make calls using the sound of your voice (For example, “Call Dad”)
- Answer an incoming call by simply saying “Answer”
- Reject a call by saying “Ignore”
- Hear the name of an incoming caller through the headset (For example: “Mom Cell” or “David’s Work”), exactly how you have the caller programmed into your phone. If the caller’s number isn’t saved to your phone, the headset will read out the phone number.
- A “Connected” audio alert means the STONE2 is paired with your mobile device
- The STONE2 signals a “Low Battery” audio alert when it needs to be charged. Battery levels also appear on the iPhone® to avoid guessing when the headset battery is running low
- The STONE2 talks users through an easy set-up process of pairing the headset to a mobile or smart phone (including the iPhone)
