Look Ma! No Hands! (A Give Away!)

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Recently I was asked to help spread the word about safe driving month, and if I would like to test out the new Motorola H17txt with MotoSpeak.

I am so not a fan of blue tooth (I mean really - when I see people walking around wearing those things talking into them, and trying to looking ever-so-important, I typically roll my eyes) but the functionality of this device was just too cool to say no.
(Please note!! I am an avid ear bud cell phone user and rarely if ever use my cell phone in the car without my ear bud in...
You know, nice long cord plugging into both your ear and your phone which is conveniently stored in your cupholder...)

So...back to the H17txt Bluetooth Device...
I finally recieved the device to review...I was getting impatient as I have been hearing a lot of buzz about this great product and some of my friends even had the opportunity to take a cruise in the Motorola Smart Car while learning more about how they can be safe drivers!

Set up was a breeze and within minutes I was texting my husband who was wearing the bluetooth.
"You are HOT"
"I love you"

Some of the other really cool features include ~

■Easy on: Text messages will automatically be played over your H17txt with MotoSpeak™ every time your headset is activated.
■Incoming text message sender ID: Always be in the know about who in your phonebook is trying to text you without having to take your hands off the wheel with sender ID announcements.
■Auto-response message: Determine if you want to send an automated text message to callers informing them that you are driving and will call back when available or pick a more personalized message to send.
■Translates 150 text acronyms: Acronyms such as lol, btw and l8r are translated when the text message is read aloud, so you will never miss the meaning of a message.

When paired with any Bluetooth-compatible phone, such as DROID by Motorola, H17txt with MotoSpeak™ also allows for turn-by-turn directions to be heard only by the driver, not everyone else in the car. With this enhanced headset, you can even listen to streaming media, music, videos and games – all hands-free.

I don't know about you - but this falls under the category of simplifying my life!
What do you think?
You could totally use this right?

Retail value of the Motorola H17txt is $100 - Totally worth the money in this frugal mom's opinion! The ease of use and the punch it packs is awesome! And yes, you'll be seeing me sporting this fancy little headset from time to time now - I'm converted!

Would you like to win one of these hot little numbers for yourself?
(and it truly is little - a nice, cute, unobtrusive way to safely stay in touch!)

Simply leave me a comment here!
One winner will be chosen via random.org...

I use my wired ear bud when driving, just safer all around. I wish I had an ear piece like this, saving for it for me and Hubby as they can be pricey.

I am like you are where I use earbuds and put my phone in the cup holder. Actually, earbuds don't fit in my ear (I must have weird shape innards) so I use a headset with a microphone bar (that thing that looks like a mouth guard). I would LOVE something like this. I drive between Park Rapids and Mpls 2 -3 times a month and I use that drive time to catch up on my calls with family and friends.

I have nothing to use with my Droid and would love to try this bad boy out. Especially to text my hubby,"You are sexy." :)

I vowed NEVER to have something in my ear......TILL NOW !!!! I think nowadays this is PERFECT!!

Robin said...

Okay, DH *finally* just figured out texting this week. Would love the opportunity to have a Motorola-bot tell me I'm a hottie! : )

Pick me! Pick me!

My old bluetooth died around the time I got an iPhone and I've never replaced it. I use the speaker phone instead. But now with the baby it's sometimes hard to hear on speaker. A new bluetooth that reads me texts would be a.maz.ing!

This would be great with my EVO. :)

I would love to use one of these and be a "convert." Sounds like the way to go for sure!

I've never used one of these. I just put it on speaker and say, "What?" frequently. Sounds like this would be great!
