No matter what you’ve told or tried to convince yourself, I’m afraid that no one walking around with a Bluetooth headset in their ear looks cool. But we all suck it up for the sake of convenience, because as cellphones have gotten smarter, they’ve also gotten bigger and heavier to hold. So I’m going to assume that’s what Samsung realized when they created this slim stick type Bluetooth headset that almost looks like a fancy fountain pen when carried in a jacket pocket.
Pocket-lint had a chance to play with a prototype recently, which as far as I can tell has the exact same functionality as a Bluetooth headset, except that it doesn’t hang off your ear. When a call comes in you hold and use the slim stick like the more svelte and lighter cellphones of yesteryear. It also means it’s pretty much useless when driving, and believe it or not, doesn’t even include a pen. But given its size there’s probably a pretty hefty battery in there, which should appeal to heavy and/or image conscious talkers.
