Parrot MINIKIT Mobile Speakerphone

[New Prrot MINIKIT speakierphone offers advanced voice recognition technlogy including phone books with voice tags for easy hands-free voice dialing.]

Paris -- Parrot, one of the world-leading innovators in Bluetooth technology, today introduced its new Parrot MINIKIT, a hands-free mobile speakerphone that features next-generation, best-in-class voice recognition and audio quality for crystal clear, voice-activated phoning in the car, at home or in the office. The new MINIKIT was announced at the 2006 Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris, France.

To validate its exceptional performance prior to its launch, Parrot had the MINIKIT tested against the top two competitors' speakerphones by one of Europe's leading audio testing firms. The MINIKIT was found to be superior in the three categories that most affect the user's experience: volume, voice transmission quality and voice reception quality.

The new Parrot MINIKIT is the only speakerphone in its category with advanced voice recognition technology that allows users to set up their phone books with voice tags for the convenience and added control of true hands-free voice dialing -- especially important when driving.

The superb audio quality of the MINIKIT is due to its built-in two-watt high-fidelity speaker and a built-in omni-directional microphone supported by the latest DSP-2 signal processing technology.

"This state-of-the-art Parrot MINIKIT speakerphone ushers in a new era of performance and mobility since this solution goes wherever you go and provides the trademark hands-free capabilities for which Parrot is known," said Ed Valdez, president of Parrot, Inc. in the USA. "And with the increasing usage of Voice over IP throughout the US, this solution also easily enables VoIP calls with Bluetooth-enabled laptops in the office."

Like the car kits in the company's product line, the Parrot MINIKIT is user-friendly. It has upgradeable software to ensure compatibility with future cell phones. It will pair with up to five phones, each with 150 voice tags, and recognizes multiple languages. Once paired, it will connect automatically with the user's cell phone and will work with virtually all Bluetooth-enabled cell phones on the market.

Parrot MINIKIT also features last-number redial. And, for privacy, users can switch a call from the speakerphone to their cell phone by simply pressing the green 'call' button, and back again the same way.

The battery-powered MINIKIT is totally self-contained with no external wires or accessories.

It is light-weight and ultra-compact. Weighing only 3.5 ounces and measuring only 4.3 x 2.5 x 1.2 inches -- about the size of a wallet -- it is designed to fit in a pocket or a purse, and will go everywhere the user goes. It features 10 hours of talk time, more than one week of standby time and will fully recharge in only three hours, and comes with both 12V and 120V charging units.

The Parrot MINIKIT will be available online and through U.S. retailers in the fourth quarter with an MSRP of $124.99.
