Bluetooth Gets Better With New Apps. BlueAnt Wireless

Techstination feature for Monday, July 5, 2010

Bluetooth gets better with some new apps. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Plenty of people still ignore laws against using handheld phones while driving. But going handsfree is getting easier. For owners of Android phones, BlueAnt Wireless has a new app that works with the company's S4 Car Sepakerphone and T1 headset. Marketing VP Jennifer Cauble...

"Drivers can communicate on the road without having to touch their speakerphone at all. They can make and receive calls, they can access information, all with their voice. And all they have to do is use this trigger phrase called Blue Ant, speak to me. And at any time, S4 will be activated for your voice commands. And you can even access certain applications that give you certain information and turn by turn directions."

Including the ability to listen to text messages. You can find more info at You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
