Digest: February accessories

While in Barcelona unexpected smartphones from SE and walkmans from NTT surf the Bolshoi Theater by leaps and bounds, some manufacturers managed to introduce a number of accessories in between. These are the same Sony Ericsson, Samsung, LG (I won't write about them, as there is little information, and there is nothing particularly attractive), as well as some "free" developments from third-party companies. This year, Nokia did not introduce a line of new accessories, some things will still be shown during the year, well, a big announcement is worth waiting for at the next exhibition, Motorola “fired back” at CES. Although it is completely unclear to me how it happened that new phones and smartphones, and this is against the backdrop of all sorts of filthy rumors. In short, with accessories at the exhibition, if not complete seams, then something close to that. Although there were a couple of really interesting things. Let's start with Sony Ericsson.

Sony Ericsson HPM-77

The most important thing at the show is the new wired headset, because now we will have to use it with SE products for a long time (it is clear that it will be months before the first of the announced devices appear). It is unlikely that much will be said about it, as far as I understand, these are generally different headphones, with a different design and, accordingly, with different characteristics. I really hope that the new headset will not fall out of the connectors of new models, the microphone will not “die” in the cold, the wiring will be strong and all that. And now - interesting, see what they write on the Russian SE website about this model, its technical characteristics, let me comment a little in brackets:

Features

  • 3.5mm jack (referring to detachable headphones)
  • Stereo (!)
  • Fast connection port (this is Fast Port, why it is not clear why it should be translated)
  • With two headphones (!!)
  • High power rating (very important)
  • Neodymium magnets (well, also a feature)
  • Oxygen-free copper cord (and again important)

I can only wait until the model appears in the dealership and compare it with current models for improvements. Although, it seems to me, the difference will be especially noticeable with new products, and not with any "junk". The price of the novelty, I think, will be similar to the HPM-70/75, that is, about 1500 rubles.

Sony Ericsson HCB-150

This is a car kit that is very beautiful and continues the work of past car kits. There is also a display here, judging by the phrase on the site “Your mobile phone's address book is loaded automatically. It is then mapped to the Bluetooth™ Car Handsfree HCB-150 for quick and easy call management.” Translation, again, in the spirit of the instructions of the 90s. Profile 2.0 is supported, I would like to believe that a universal holder and a car charger will be supplied with the headset. The product is interesting, especially curious how they worked on the quality of speech transmission. The price will be refreshing, at least three or four thousand rubles, do not go to a fortuneteller (beauty requires sacrifice, after all).

Sony Ericsson CCR-70

USB-adapter for Sony small cards, on the one hand you insert a card, on the other hand there is something that can be placed in a computer or laptop. Handy contraption and, most likely, inexpensive.

Sony Ericsson CDS-75

Desk holder for phones and smartphones from SE with an unconventional connector location, in this case for devices with a left-hand drive (see W910i). The connector can move along the bar, lowering and rising, and a charger is inserted into it. I really want to believe that the little thing will go on sale and will be of interest to sellers, consumers have a need for such a thing. It is unlikely that the cost will exceed a thousand rubles, I liked the design.

Sony Ericsson ISP-70/80

It is gratifying that styluses for G800/G900 smartphones appeared right after the announcements. Everything is in the tradition of SE, three things in a pack, a useful thing.

Samsung MBP-100

Fantastic, but this is really a small projector (with a couple of medium-sized smartphones) for mobile technology, capable of "clogging" a twenty-inch screen, having its own battery (working from the mains is also possible), but, most importantly, it should arrive in March for sale in Korea, nothing is clear about sales in other markets (most likely, there will be an approbation, after which a decision will be made). Rumors about the device fed the earth even before the exhibition, but here it was demonstrated in all its glory. Definitely an interesting thing for people who are engaged in sales, when an ordinary briefcase is enough to fit the entire presentation economy - a phone, a projector, a stand, a screen. Clearly, not to collect halls and not even rooms, but still. However, all this is just my speculation, because the accessory is a typical exotic. How to watch a movie at home if there is no screen? How long does the battery last? They say that the film is enough, but really? Can it be connected to a laptop? Why connect it to a laptop if there are larger models, but still small enough to fit in the mentioned briefcase? So for Samsung, in my opinion, this is just a test of strength, a subtle hint of superiority, and so on. We can discuss this topic in the forum.

Zeemote JS1

Give it to me, warghh! This is a wireless controller for playing on the phone, something like that. As you can see, it's kind of like a cropped joystick that connects to your phone via Bluetooth and allows you to control all sorts of important things - an airplane shooting at an enemy, for example. I'm sure the guys at Nokia should seriously consider making this thing under their own brand, because it fits in nicely with the N-Gage concept. The main thing is that the battery lasts for a long time, does not interfere with the use of the headset and is suitable for all games. I will definitely try to get the device for a test by any means.

As you can see, the producers did not try this time to please the public with all sorts of interesting things, well, except for what is described in the article. This fact suggests a rather simple thing: if we see any breakthrough, say, in the field of sound in Bluetooth headsets, then only at the end of the year or even in 2009. The trends for 2008 remain the same - multipoint, two-microphone circuits in mono headsets, high-quality headphones and a 3.5 jack in stereo solutions.
