BlueAnt Wireless has released the Supertooth 3 Bluetooth hands-free portable speaker phone with text-to-speech technology allowing voice interaction with the device.
The voice prompts help users pair the device with a mobile phone and upload the phone's address book.
When a call is received, the Supertooth 3 announces the incoming caller's name and the user is verbally invited to accept or reject the call.
Six languages are supported by the device.
The Supertooth 3 has Clear Voice Capture (CVC) technology and a DSP from Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR) to help improve audio quality.
CVC applies echo cancellation and noise suppression, and dynamically adjusts sound levels to compensate for loud engine noise or external noise when car windows are open.
The Supertooth 3 can be paired with up to eight devices and supports voice dial activation, redial and call reject.
BlueAnt Wireless CEO, Taisen Maddern, said the Supertooth 3 was designed with driver safety in mind and provides a "legal" option for drivers who need to be contacted by mobile phone.
The Supertooth 3 includes includes wall and car charging options and supports USB charging.
BlueAnt claims the Supertooth 3 provides up to 15 hours of talk time or 800 hours on standby. The device retails for $159.
