Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Headset HBH-608 Makes Handling Calls Via a VAIO PC a Breeze; New Headset Utilizes Sony VSIO BX Series and VoIP Technology

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Call handling over the Internet has just been made a lot easier with the latest Sony Ericsson Bluetooth(TM) Headset HBH-608. Compatible with the Sony VAIO(R) BX series, Sony's line of VAIO Professional notebooks announced yesterday, the HBH-608 offers a solution that frees your hands while taking phone calls.

Bluetooth(TM) wireless technology connects the notebook with the headset, making it possible to handle calls over the Internet (VoIP) without connecting any phone cables. The acoustic construction of speaker and microphone in the HBH-608 ensures high quality sound, whether it is used with a computer or a mobile phone. Matching the VAIO design, the HBH-608 is small and lightweight with a talk time of up to 10 hours.
Sony Ericsson was the first company in the world to launch a commercial Bluetooth(TM) product and has already introduced several successful Bluetooth(TM) headsets on the market. Sony Corporation excels in computer technology with the VAIO BX series. "The knowledge from two strong brands in the communications industry comes together in this solution," says Ulf Persson,
corporate vice president for Sony Ericsson Accessories. "We believe that our joint experience benefits the user, making telecommunication as smooth as possible."
Using the HBH-608 with a VAIO is easy. You connect them via the computer's own software. The wireless connection allows you to move around freely since it works at a distance of up to 10 meters. The same headset can also be used with a Bluetooth(TM) mobile phone when you are out and about.
