For one day only this blog has been taken over by a man.
His name is Will and it’s his first appearance here. Not surprisingly he is a little unsure of what to expect.
When I was asked if I wanted to review a newly launched speaker phone from Jabra, I jumped at the chance thinking it would look great in my little upstairs office. The PR pitch really appealed:
As a busy mum, talking on the phone is part of everyday life but looking after the kids is also pretty important!! Enjoy the best of both worlds by making a hands-free call using a Jabra Bluetooth headset or speakerphone. Keep your hands free for entertaining, wiping, soothing and cradling a new born or taking the toddlers to playschool. With a Bluetooth headset or speakerphone you can chat away too!
But when the gadget that arrived turned out to be an in-car speaker phone, I really wasn’t up to the task.
Not because only men can review gadgets properly, but because I don’t drive a car!
So therein lies the problem.
Step forward my sister’s boyfriend, Will, who was delighted to be handed a £99 (RRP) ‘toy’ to play with.
It’s very easy to use – especially for blokes as you don’t have to read any instructions!
When you switch it on for the first time a voice guides you through the set up process, and using Bluetooth, pairs up with your mobile phone. It even copies your phonebook so that when you receive a call the device tells you who is on the other end.
The easy to use theme continues when you get it into the car, simply clip it to your sun visor, turn it on and it will seek out your phone automatically.
There is some clever technology to ensure you get a crystal clear sound, but the best bit is that you don’t have to wear a headset and look like a prat.
The Jabra Cruiser 2 comes highly recommended.
If you drive a car.
