BlueAnt Supertooth 3, Hands On
[CES 2008] How many of you folks have some sort of Bluetooth handsfree speakerphone for your vehicle? Well, for those who are thinking of picking one up, BlueAnt has yet another offering to further tempt your wallet. The BlueAnt Supertooth 3 shares a resemblance with the Supertooth Light Bluetooth Handsfree Speakerphone, although it drops the square buttons for circular ones. It isn’t only different aesthetically as it boasts some pretty new neat functions as well. First of all, the Supertooth 3 comes with a variety of different languages options including English (US), French, Spanish, German and English (UK). Once you have selected the desired language, it will automatically look for your Bluetooth-enabled handset. Read on to find out more about the BlueAnt Supertooth 3. When paired, the Supertooth 3 will automatically download the content of your phonebook whereby it will use its voice-synthetizing technology to read out the name of your callers each time there is an incoming call. I find this pretty neat as I no longer need to take my eyes off the road, but what happens if I am one who keys in nicknames for my friends? Surely the software can’t decipher someone like Fatal1ty or Reap3r? Still, it would be interesting to hear about how this thing works.

In addition, the BlueAnt Supertooth 3 also comes with an integrated vibration sensor that is capable of detecting your handset whenever you return to your vehicle (vibrations are picked up when you open and close the door). This is pretty neat since you can always go down to your local Wal-mart and pick up whatever groceries you need for the week and head back to your car to be connected back to the Supertooth 3 without having to go through the tedious pairing process all over again that is normally associated with other Bluetooth handsfree speakerphones.

The BlueAnt Supertooth 3 will ship this March for $119 a pop.
