Green in Cell Phone land

ANYCOM Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of wireless data communication and Bluetooth technology, announces the launch of the Solar Car-Kit SCK-1(TM), a small Bluetooth device that allows drivers to talk hands-free on their cell phones.

The Solar Car-Kit is a first-of-its-kind speaker device that connects wirelessly through Bluetooth technology to a mobile phone. The SCK-1 enables users to talk on their phones while driving, eliminating the safety hazard presented by hand-held cell phone use. Additionally, the device is environmentally friendly as it can be entirely charged by solar power.

To use, simply mount the credit-card sized SCK-1 into a car windshield using its transparent holder. One large, easily-located button is used for pairing and call management. The SCK-1 allows for voice-dial, last number re-dial, muting, holding and three-way calling, as long as these functions are supported by the mobile phone and carrier. The SCK-1 can also be used as a conference device if the need for a meeting arises while in the car. It's easy to find while driving, and three LED indicators clearly indicate Bluetooth link, call status, solar status and battery status.

The solar panel on the SCK-1's side allows the user 30 minutes of talk time for every three hours of sufficient sunlight it takes in, and the car kit is fully recharged after 30-40 hours of sunlight. When fully charged, the battery lasts for up to 15 hours of talk time and up to 25 days of stand-by time.

The SCK-1 has built-in 16-bit digital signal processors with active noise reduction to filter surrounding noise, resulting in superior sound quality. Echo cancellation also helps improve communication sound quality from the close quarters of the car. The high performance speaker with 95dB output delivers a clear, loud signal even when driving noise is high. The volume can be easily controlled through the linked-in mobile phone.

Solar Car-Kit will be released on October 29, 2007. SCK-1 is currently available for an MSRP of $99.00. For more information, please visit the official site.
