Engineering better Bluetooth: BlueAnt Wireless

Techstination feature for Monday, December 13, 2010

   Engineering better Bluetooth.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    BlueAnt Wireless has garnered an Innovations award from the Consumer Electronics Association for its S4 hands-free speakerphone.   And now the company is rolling out a new headset, the Q2 Platinum.   Like the S4, it features truly hands-free control.  Marketing VP Tim Towster…

“When you have a call coming in, it will automatically speak to you and say, Tim Towster is calling, answer or reject.  The other nice feature about it is if I want to be able to do voice commands and be able to voice dial, all I have to do is say, “voice commands” and it will automatically take me into my phone’s voice commands. “  You don’t have to reach up to your ear and press anything. “You don’t have to press anything.   It also performs extremely well in noisy environments.”

    BlueAnt, based in Australia,  builds quality and useful features into its devices…which range in price from 79 dollars up to 129.  You can find more info at  You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
