[Motorola's new Timeport with Bluetooth connectivity to be made available this month in US.]
by Ian Bell -- "This is the first Motorola cell phone based on the new wireless Bluetooth technology. With a variety of features including speakerphone, voice recognition, and voice activation, the Timeport(TM) 270c pretty much allows you to have the conveniences of a pager, cell phone, and limited laptop features all in one little device. Entering the market at around $350.00, you will pay a hefty price for these conveniences.
"I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about the Timeport 270c when I first heard about its promises. It is not very often that a manufacturer touts such enhanced features and is actually able to deliver them. The Timeport 270c is, in actuality, a lot smaller than its picture indicates. At 4.7 ounces with a stock battery, the 270c has an average weight when compared to other cell phones, although newer cell phones entering the market are considerably smaller and lighter. As companions to the Timeport 270c cell phone, we also received the FM radio headset and the Bluetooth Connectivity Kit.
"The Timeport 270c should be available September 2001 and works on the CDMA 800/1900 and analog 800 MHz networks. Our service was provided by Verizon and we know Alltel will be providing service as well.
