Revealed yesterday at the 2010 CTIA Wireless show in Las Vegas, BlueAnt’s new T1 Bluetooth headset appears to be designed for those who enjoy a more extreme lifestyle than sitting around a conference table at meetings all day. A sealed design keeps out dust and moisture, while removable silicon covers protect the headset from bumps or when it’s inevitably dropped while you’re fumbling to put it on. And since it’s supposed to survive the rigors of being outdoors, the T1 is also the first BlueAnt headset to incorporate the company’s new ‘Wind Armour Technology’ which uses a patent-pending design and noise cancellation software to provide clear audio even in winds up to 22 mph.
Other features include ‘Caller Name Announce’ which is pretty self-explanatory, the ability to respond to an incoming call by just saying ‘Answer’ or ‘Ignore’ and A2DP support for hearing commands from your smartphone’s GPS software. And the T1 should be available sometime in May of this year for around $80.
