    but if it is bluetooth, why is it wired? is it something like a mini player to which headphones can be attached to play the content of the phone?

    quite innovative, looks like there's a competitor for the new Ipod shuffle. the thing could have been smaller though.

    Motorokr u9 used to come with one of this type of 'neckless' . Only it was much much better looking . It could actually be hung around neck and was a head turner . Only problem was normal length earphones become too cumbersome to use with these .

    Btw , any word on pricing ?

    that's the thing, its not a bluetooth headset, it is a small device which connects to the phone via blutooth and normal headphones can be connected to it. I know it's not a PMP to compete with IPOD shuffle, but if You have the phone in your pocket, you can hang this thing around your neck like the shuffle and probably change the tracks without touching the phone. So, you get what I meant???

    Err, ht indeed is a Bluetooth headset. You can take calls too. :D
    Comes with a stand which connects seamlessly with your home network and transfers data/updates to your phone. :)
