Nokia's new headset lets you wear a picture

Nokia's latest Bluetooth phone headset, the HS-13W Wireless Image Headset, aims to transform a cell-phone accessory into a piece of high-tech jewelry.

Measuring 62.8 millimeters (mm) by 45.3mm by 15.4mm, the 57-gram Wireless Image Headset is carried on a strap and is meant to be worn around the neck as a pendant. This allows a user to show off the headset's coolest feature: a 128-pixel by 128-pixel color screen with a backlight that can display an image or a text message.

Images can be displayed as a single image or as a slideshow.

Users can load images and text to the Wireless Image Headset from either a Nokia cell phone or a PC using a Bluetooth connection. The headset has a maximum capacity of 500K bytes.

The headset, which is powered by a rechargeable battery, also has a five-way joystick that allows a user to answer and end calls; check the headset's phone book, which can be transferred from a phone; or activate its voice dialling function.

The Wireless Image Headset will be available worldwide during the fourth quarter of this year, according to Nokia. Pricing was not immediately available.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
